In the West there is everything new: an inspiring apartment on the beach - voila! Home & Design


Highlights: Marina Rechter-Rubinstein designed a home for her and her husband in Ashdod, Israel. The couple bought the property from a contractor and spent three years designing the home. The home has four bedrooms, a bathroom, a living room, a dining room and a kitchen. The architect says the design is modern and contemporary, with a focus on natural materials. It is located on a high floor overlooking the beach, with views of the city and the city center in the distance.

The young couple wanted to create a homely, inviting and embracing space for themselves and their three children in the 140-square-meter apartment on a high floor that they purchased from a contractor in one of the new projects in Ashdod. For this purpose, they were assisted by architect Marina Rechter-Rubinstein, owner of ReMa Architects, who designed a space precisely tailored to their tastes and needs. "This is a warm and loving family that above all it was important for them to add the standard apartment to a home space and throughout the work process I made sure to translate the building for them into a family nest that they could enjoy for many years," explains the architect.

The process took about three years. The original design of the contractor was completely different and in the new one the architect made sure to merge the necessary functions in order to obtain spacious open spaces, multiple storage areas and an ideal view of the sea from all spaces including the bathrooms, a detail that had a sweeping impact on the design.

The apartment features ample public space and 4 bedrooms. In the couple's suite, Rechter-Rubenstein connected the walk-in closet to the bedroom, the spacious bathroom to an effective utility room, and the kitchen with dining area. The fireplace wall that is visible upon entering the apartment separates the public from the private and leaves parts of the private space, such as the bathroom, hidden from view. It is perceived as an element that has a warmth that manages to unite and unite the various elements and wings.

The hotline is visible from every corner of the space. The design is young, dynamic and contemporary, and at the same time conveys this warmth by combining natural materials, one of the dominant of which is wood that returns in different parts of the house in a balanced and precise manner, as well as soft and pleasant complementary colors that help create an open and airy look. "The furniture we chose is relatively minimalistic and gives a place of honor to the golden beaches and the blue sea that fit well into the color scheme of the house. The geometric and asymmetrical composition that characterizes the space (by the fireplace wall at the entrance, the complex TV wall and other elements) add interest and dynamism to the space," explains the architect.

"In the meantime, we worked, for example, with parquet consisting of oak units in three different sizes and finishes, as well as a decorative wall made of wooden rulers, elements that blend harmoniously into the space and constitute an important layer in the complex design picture. In contrast, we combined elements in greenish colors such as the buffet (multimedia furniture) and built-in elements such as the fireplace at the entrance, which creates an obvious barrier between the areas and still leaves the space open and airy."

The warm and meticulous aesthetic continues in the kitchen in the center of which is a concrete-like Corian island, to which a table plate made of natural wood is attached on a higher plane. The wood paneling echoes the colors of the living room opposite, the wood in the darker furniture niche creates contrast.

In the couple's bedroom suite, a Mashrabia wall stands out, the fact that it is not in the plane of the original wall adds three-dimensional and complex visuals to the space and is undoubtedly an important and central focal point. The sink cabinet is just outside the couple's bathroom and is accessed from the corridor leading to it. The transparent partition created by Rechter-Rubinshein is an element of hidden doubt, an open doubt that allows the ultimate view of the beach.

The bathrooms have been designed with a natural and organic look, and some would say they create the feeling of a real guest room. In the bathroom adjacent to the utility room, the architect opened a decorative niche wall that you usually see in the living room, the bathroom serves as a piece in every respect. The golden, fabric-like ceramics will be applied to tiles that are 3 meters long and therefore also create an open and airy feeling.
