Fine materials are easy to maintain without much effort.

"The real challenges in this project were discovered during the demolition stages," says Issa.

"The old construction included a lot of structural pillars. Every few meters there was a planted pillar that could not be uprooted, so we lowered some of them, and in their place we strengthened the infrastructure with reinforcing beams in the ceiling."



Issa says that she also made the stairs, which were practical and located on the edge of the house, the highlight of the project, when she designed them as a central axis in the house.

The couple had two main requests: Since they are both working people, they asked for a home designed with fine materials, which could be maintained without too much effort and investment.

In addition, they also asked for a home that would look intimate and warm, despite its size.

Issa used many design tactics that stand out in her other projects, such as interesting combinations and matching of different styles, and in addition she chose to emphasize the spaces with the use of black paint.

"The organic and relaxed design was made possible, among other things, thanks to classrooms and a careful selection of furniture items from various stores, which will not be seen as the search for the perfect set, but furniture that blends into the space and looks like it has always existed," Issa emphasizes.



Something that stands out very much in the house in its new incarnation, is three living spaces.

Central living space for entertaining on the ground floor, another more intimate and family space, and a living space on the top floor, used only by the couple.

All of these are steeped in materials, textures and design layers that bring interest and uniqueness.

The range of shades chosen for the house was cold-gray-gray, combined with a warm beige.

Porcelain and marble granite tiles are strong, compared to soft and warming walnut wood.

Combinations and contrasts that are designed together in harmony and convey a warm and enveloping home, rather than banal.

Italian porcelain tiles measuring 120/120 cm cover the floor of the entrance floor. The



staircase, as mentioned, underwent a metamorphosis and became the focus of the house. It is already visible from the entrance space, with the dining area on one side and the spacious kitchen on the other. Characterized by a floating and light look, with a stair wall covered with terrazzo-like porcelain tiles, it offers an element of lightness and flow, alongside grandeur as a design focus.Between the dining area and the kitchen, in the stairwell, a hidden guest toilet next to the dining area, and a practical storage pantry on the side In addition to a wide and inviting public space, on the entrance floor there are also two children's rooms, which are intended for a family that will expand at a time that suits the couple.

Beyond the widespread use of wood, as an elegant and atmospheric warmer, Issa used textile items to create a more intimate home, and envelops in its essence.

"I really like rugs, since childhood," she explains.

"My grandfather really liked rugs, and basically the whole family. We have rugs in the family home that have accompanied us for 60 years. It attests to the dedicated care in them. Beyond that, I think a room without a rug is an empty room."



In this project, Issa used rugs that are different versions of the same model (the 'Tuscany' model of the red carpet chain), in a different way than usual: she chose to place a rug over a rug in the main living room, to give a layered look, "just like our layers of clothing," she explains. .

"Not just 'throwing' a rug in the space, but laying it on top of each other, in different shades, for a unique look, while giving it a lot of respect and emphasis."

The shades chosen by Issa correspond well with the materials and other shades in the space, and add another layer, in the form of a soft and pleasant texture.

Above the rugs she placed three tables in different sizes, shapes and finishes - to create a unique combination, instead of the banal set.

A 3.4-meter-long leather sofa brings comfort to the space.

Two armchairs and a pedestal complete the living space, with the two legs of the armchairs "rising" on the carpet, helping to define the space, and create a powerful and centered look.

Issa used a variety of materials, with an emphasis on the natural and organic, for a casual, relaxed and inviting look.

Leather combined with linen and brass legs - give a wonderful and interesting contrast to the furniture items, and the entire space.

The kitchen also represents the opposite-attracted approach through a design that blends gracefully between traditional and contemporary.

Between modern and cold and homey and warm.

The tall wall cabinets are made of American walnut wood with a natural finish, and are spread over an entire wall, and offer many storage options, along with an integral and elegant assimilation of the large appliances.

In addition to the refrigerator and ovens, it also contains a handy coffee machine and two hidden heating drawers, one under the microwave and the other under the coffee machine.

On the island is a white marble surface with golden and brown tendons, which correspond with the walnut cabinets.

The work surface and the lower cabinets in gray-concrete cladding offer a design contrast and illustrate the harmonious contrast.

The client said she wanted to wake up and stay in this room and not leave it.

Upstairs is the couple's suite, which features a pampering bathroom, as well as an intimate, double living room and a well-equipped kitchenette.

Lots of reasons to stay up.

"I wanted to design a luxurious bedroom in the style of a boutique hotel," says Issa.

"Indeed, the client told me the most beautiful sentence of all: 'I want to wake up and stay in this room and not leave it.' It widened my heart," she concludes.

The room is designed in a pleasant, light and airy way, thanks to a power wall consisting of black oak bars.

This gives a strong focal point, but one that exudes airiness and seems "breathing".

The power wall incorporated a TV on one side, and on the other a spacious closet with black glass doors.



Because the wall behind the bed had supporting beams, Issa chose to cover them with plaster, thus creating a kind of recessed niche, in the form of a headboard with a recessed lighting strip above.

A similar light stripe is repeated on one side of the wall, and on the other side of the bed a light fixture dangles and meets a decorated side table.

The asymmetrical style brings interest to the bedroom and contributes to the designed and relaxed look.

Glass cladding is similar to the cabinet in the power wall chosen for the couple's bathroom, which is in an open space and unified with the bedroom.

The bathroom has an impressive standing fruit bath, with a floor faucet, an elongated marble sink with a floating mirror, 170 cm long, below it a floating storage unit made of walnut wood.



The romantic room presents an informal and pleasant approach, also thanks to a luxurious makeup corner and armchair Different from the one in the living room downstairs, on which are embossed elegant stripes, which correspond perfectly with the wall of power in the room.
