BROKEN DESIGN
Architectural Designer 2020 - Present

As an Architectural Designer I now work independently on multi-scale projects: residential renovations, interior design, kitchen & bathroom design, and room makeovers.

Cape House Renovation & Addition

A tight budget renovation of an old 1,600 sqft cape style house that includes replacing vinyl siding with traditional wood siding and trims, transforming open porch to a mudroom, adding 2 dog-house dormers and allowing a future addition of a garage.

Bathroom Design

Following the client's request for a statement, colorful guest bathroom, the design of this small area evolved around luxury brass fixtures and bold greens.

YASHAR ARCHITECTS
Architect  2010 - 2011

International Architecture firm specializing in high-rise residential & commercial Architecture, and Urban Planning.

Gindi TLV

While working at Yashar Architects I was part of a 15-architect team who worked on a 30-acre complex of 10 buildings in Tel-Aviv Center.

Gindi project includes a mix of residential, commercial, educational and public spaces.

At the center of the plan is a wide urban park defined by a perimeter of residential buildings: 10 fourteen-story buildings and 4 forty-story towers.

The project provides a wide range of residential units that float above the commercial areas, public institutions, kindergartens and daycare centers.

A 2-story shopping mall is covered by the park, and a subterranean parking level provides parking for the residents living within the project and the surrounding area.

JANSEN STUDIO
Event Designer 2010

Working as an Event Designer required me to use the same principles that guide me as an Architect: 

Each project starts with a specific concept inspired by a unique site & client’s story, followed by layout planning to define distinguished areas and the movement around and between them, choosing materials & furniture, and finally, supervising the installation on site.
