Square Compositions Penthouse¬†is a rooftop apartment located in the center of Tel Aviv. This luxurious dwelling was designed by minimalist favourite¬†Pitsou Kedem Architect, also located¬†in Tel Aviv.¬†As the name suggests, this structure was inspired the by the square, with the shape rising¬†and recessing¬†throughout¬†each room.
The home takes up the two top floors of the apartment building; with the private bedrooms on the upper story and a simple kitchen and living area on the lower floor.¬†A good amount of double-height spaces¬†ensures the apartment feels airy and open in every room.¬†Floor to ceiling windows offer exceptional views of the city below and flood the home with natural light, even when covered with soft white curtains.¬†Other materials on the interior are understated: glass railings, wood floors, and a hanging chandelier¬†arranged of multiple illuminated¬†rods; a deconstructed¬†square, if you will.
The unique pattern on the walls, composed of varying sizes of squares, eliminates the need to hang any decor in the home.¬†This same pattern floats¬†in the shape of a kitchen light fixture. The dramatic repetition of form is quite mesmerising: one’s eye can easily become lost in the simple and soothing sequence. Square Compositions Penthouse is just the right amount of design: not allowed to feel stark, yet not at all busy. This dwelling allows us to experience the rare perfect blend of artistry and architecture.
