The renovation began with the designer tearing down interior walls. In the process, she opened up the living space to create an open-plan kitchen and reception area.
The original balcony, which had been closed off, was reopened to allow views of the street.
Towards the back of the 80-square-metre apartment are two bedrooms, each with a separate bathroom. While one of the en suites features black and white tiles in a gridded formation, the other has hexagon-shaped tiled flooring.
To create a clean-looking interior, Zusman painted all the walls white. But to ensure the apartment didn't feel too cold or clinical, she used warm wooden flooring laid in a herringbone pattern throughout communal spaces and bedrooms.
"The aim was to create a warm feel, using hardwood fishbone floors, with a clean vibe, through a mix of steel and clean colours," she told Dezeen.
Many items were designed especially for the apartment, including a geometric bookcase made from black steel and wood, used to distinguish the dining area from the living room.
Zusman also designed the circular table, crafted from a piece of white Carrara marble.
Custom furniture and black details feature in a number of Zusman's renovation projects in Tel Aviv. In the past she has transformed a rundown apartment into an airy space, and a 60-year-old apartment into a bright home with hidden storage.
