Inaccessabile Tour
Plan and interior design: Sorana Kfir
A penthouse apartment that was built under City Plan 38 (intended to make buildings earthquake-resistant and add housing units). The original tier-like design of the building was preserved in the new penthouse apartments and produced complex constraints and realities (an elevator that divides the spaces, detached pillars and tiers).  The existing constraints offered the designer an opportunity to create an unusual blueprint based on links and views between the different tiers of the apartment despite their physical separation. Consequently, on the one hand, the apartment enjoys separated living areas and, on the other hand, multiple views of the different spaces, from which the splendid landscape can be seen.
