Perforated metal screens conceal rooms and storage space in this Tel Aviv apartment by Israeli studio Paritzki & Liani Architects. Paritzki & Liani Architects lined two walls of the 110 square metre flat with hinged translucent panels to hide away everything except the kitchen counter and a sofa.
The idea here is to thicken the existing walls with vertical perforated metal panels that may be open and closed; forming this way a thick wall that contains functions of the habitat (kitchen, closets, library, bathroom, storage). Above all, this wall is an optical device that transforms, depending on the type of light used, and modifies the height and depth of the space. In the light of day this thick perforated wall, composed of variable thicknesses, becomes a three dimensional veil that makes opalescent the different areas of the flat. Niches and deep spaces create visions of transitional forms.
