Long Island in Tel Aviv
TEL AVIV, ISRAEL
The terms ‘taylor-made’ and ‘design-addict’ get a whole new meaning in this dream of a design domicile, that brings a contemporary edge to Tel Aviv's oldest neighborhood. Elevator doors open up directly into the kitchen of the loft apartment, where an almost six-meter-long kitchen island takes center stage.
'I have two big passions in life – fashion and food. So, I opted for a huge closet and a giant kitchen.'
Meet the family
The smell of fresh paint still lingers in the brand-new 4th floor apartment overlooking one of the world's oldest cities, Jaffa. Last year, Oren Yonanov and Michal Afori and their two children made this 180 m2 apartment their new home. 'I saw this kitchen on a blog and knew I wanted it. I had never heard about this Danish company, Vipp. But I liked what I saw.', Oren explains.
View to Jaffa
While practising his favourite metier, cooking, Oren has the priviledge to overlook one of the world's oldes cities, Jaffa from the neighbourhood of ‘Neveh Tzedek’. This area is known for its Ottoman-era style, it holds a sensation of old Tel Aviv bordering the world's richest concentration of Bauhaus buildings known as the 'White City'.
'I wanted something different. It had to be a Vipp kitchen and it had to be big. My friends thought I had lost my mind when I flew in a 5.6 meter long, solid steel countertop and had two cranes lift it to the 5th floor through the terrace', says Oren.
