#3Novices: Yael Perry includes flashes of colour in otherwise muted apartment in Israel

Tel Aviv-based designer Yael Perry renovated this apartment in the Israeli region of Sharon into a “cool, contemporary” space with unexpected colourful accents.

The 240-square-metre duplex apartment has been given a stripped-back colour palette, with walls painted in muted shades of grey and blue. Perry designed oversized geometric shapes for the walls, adding diamonds, squares and rectangles in contrasting shades.

This is echoed in other details added to the apartment, including a black-and-white patterned rug, and tableware with subtle geometric prints. Perry covered a wall in the living area with concrete to add an “industrial touch”, and painted the entrance of the apartment in black so both owner and visitors can leave chalk notes for one another.

“I wanted to give the duplex main room a sense of bright, airy and young space,” Perry told Dezeen. “I wanted to bring a fresh style to the apartment and instead of hanging art on the walls or covering it with paint or wallpaper, I decided to give some flashes of colours in geometric shapes and the walls became the art itself.”

The apartment is owned by a young couple expecting a child, so Perry balanced areas for them to entertain – such as a living area with a large modular sofa and dining bar – with smaller spaces in the apartment, which have been customised as miniature play areas.

To contrast the duplex’s pared-back palette, Perry introduced flashes of colour in the form of small pieces of furniture such as bright red stools, a blue side table, and orange office accessories.

She also designed lighting specifically for the space, stringing oversized lightbulbs at the end of red cables which crisscross overhead in the staircase. The living space also features a pair of low-hanging lights, suspended on red zigzag metal stems.

The apartment’s second floor features a master bedroom that is divided from the staircase by a panel of grey glass, and finished with dark green walls and black wooden parquet flooring. There’s also a small niche, tucked into a corner of the bedroom, that Perry has furnished as a tiny office area for days spent working from home.

Perry, who previously worked with Karim Rashid in New York, set up her Tel Aviv-based studio in 2014. It focuses on interior design projects for residential spaces.

Earlier in the year she also renovated a skinny apartment in her home city, washing it in an all-white colour palette to make the holiday home seem bigger.

#3Novices: Adrian Elizalde and Clara Ocaña eschew tiles for timber in Barcelona apartment renovation

Spanish architects Adrian Elizalde and Clara Ocaña broke down walls to create a open-plan layout for this apartment in Barcelona‘s Eixample neighbourhood, and lined its new light-filled rooms in warm-toned wood.

The duo reorganised the 65-square-metre apartment on Comte Borrell street to improve access to natural light from a row of floor-to-ceiling windows at one end.

The resulting linear flow of open-plan spaces ensures daylight can pass through the lounge to the kitchen and beyond to the bedroom at the rear of the apartment.

New openings punched in the load-bearing walls that define the three new spaces – a living room, kitchen and dining space, and a bedroom and bathroom – are highlighted by the inclusion of I-beams, which are left exposed.

“Originally, the apartment presented a decayed and dark image due to the excessive subdivided rooms,” explained Elizalde and Ocaña, who run Barcelona studio EO Arquitectura.

“The patio is very narrow and it scarcely receives light. Except for the two rooms next to the main facade, the apartment was barely illuminated by natural light,” they continued. “The main objective has been to achieve the maximum use of natural light in the apartment. We simplified the distribution to obtain large and opened spaces that multiplied light.”

Interventions and existing features alike are painted white, with the I-beams and original ceiling mouldings given the same treatment.

The city’s apartments are famous for their elaborately patterned tiles, but Elizalde and Ocaña paired the bright white finish with wooden cabinetry and floorboards instead. Just a small patch of geometric-patterned tiles pave the floors of the kitchen and bathroom.

“Both traditional and technical materials are painted in white, which improved natural light and gave the apartment an homogeneous and timeless atmosphere,” said the architects.

Elizalde overhauled another apartment in Eixample as a student, using sliding doors to subdivide the spaces. The area adjacent to the city’s old town has seen a considerable amount of regeneration in recent years.

Earlier in 2017, Bonba Studio transformed an office in the district to create a two-bedroom flat featuring traditional vaulted ceilings and multi-hued surfaces, while back in 2016 Nook Architects used strategically placed mirrors to create the illusion of greater space within another of the neighbourhood’s apartments, which are traditionally have compact layouts.

#3Novices: Studio Moross designs “slightly weird” posters for relaunched Dreamland theme park

London-based Studio Moross has created maps, icons, posters and an entire set of food truck logos for Margate’s recently reopened Dreamland theme park.

The park is located in the English seaside town of Margate, and dates back to the 1800s. Studio Moross – led by art director and designer Kate Moross – was first approached to create a new set of standalone food brands for the park, which relaunched this year after going into administration in 2016.

Moross designed a different identity for each food truck, using animal characters and different typefaces to match the food being served. The studio also designed overarching branding for the park’s food area – dubbed The Friendliest Food Court Ever – creating a set of giant smiley-face logos with interchangeable eyes.

“We try not to get bogged down in demographics,” said the designer. “We just tried to make something that someone will look at and think ‘that’s cool’ – whether they’re five or 45. We wanted to keep it slightly weird and fun, but not patronising.”

To accompany the park’s reopening, and renewed focus on hosting music, Moross also created a set of illustrated music-festival-style posters and maps, made in partnership with artist Mica Warren.

“Illustrations have been a key lead on everything,” said Moross, who set her studio up in 2012, having made several music videos, as well as work for Topshop and Vogue. “They’re bright and colourful, and feel fresh, modern and eye-catching.”

“A lot of theme parks use photography in campaigns, so we hope this will set us apart from other similar events.”

The studio chose a new sans serif typeface, which has been paired with a palette of green, orange, yellow and pink. Posters highlight the park’s new live music lineup, as well as its food truck offering and collection of rides and amusements.

The studio plans to work with a set of different illustrators across the course of the next year to evolve the graphic identity – which it hopes will play a key role in attracting locals as well as those travelling from London.

Although it dates back to the 1800s, when the site was first used for rides, Dreamland didn’t start going by its current name until the 1920s. It shut in 2005, and reopened ten years later with a redesign by Hemingway Design and Ray Hole Architects – which was a Designs of the Year 2016 nominee.

Artist David Shrigley also harnessed the power of illustration earlier this year for a series of posters urging the Conservative government to “keep Britain kind”.

Early yesterday, rumours floated down from North Indian media that Shankar’s magnum opus 2.0 starring Superstar  Rajinikanth and Akshay Kumar has been pushed from its initially announced date of 25th January 2018 to April 2018.
