Balanced contrasts

A duplex in Raanana, in an old building with closed spaces and claustrophobic walls. We broke walls, created space and large openings to two balconies. We chose a dark floor to cover the height of the ceiling that is below the standard. We emphasized two dominant walls, covered the living room wall with dark bricks and the kitchen wall with a pattern of aluminum strips. Combination of concrete and wood added the warm, yet modern look.
