Iceberg

Architect Talia Davidi of Laila Architecture has designed Iceberg in Tel-Aviv, Israel.


This project, located in a typical residential building from 1961, was a square-formed apartment that was fully renovated as an homage to the local 1960s modernist architecture.

Aiming for natural textures and a soft atmosphere to suit the young-at-heart retired clients, the design is composed of exposed light wood carpentry, locally produced terrazzo tiles and natural lime plaster. Limited and repeated set of light and ecological up-to-date materials were chosen in order to achieve a serene space in the heart of Tel-Aviv.

Initially, all partitions and old additions were demolished resulting in a fluid, light space. In order to create a much-needed buffer from the tough Israeli summer sun, both original balconies were reopened according to the original 1960s plan, allowing space for the clients' love for gardening.


This project has been longlisted in the apartment interior category of Dezeen Awards 2022.
