Atar Yuval is the founder of the Atar Yuval studio of architecture and interior design, a boutique studio that specializes in architectural planning for people who are seeking high-quality interior structure and setting.
WHAT IS YOUR PROFESSIONAL BACKGROUND?
I am a graduate of architecture and interior design, with a master's degree in urban planning from the Faculty of Architecture at the Technion. I am consultant on the Planning and Construction Committee of the Tel Aviv Municipality.
WHAT IS YOUR MOTTO?
I believe in creating architecture that excites you every time you encounter it anew.
WHAT MAKES YOUR WORK UNIQUE?
I have developed a work process that allows me to refine the planning and design elements for my clients, rendering distinctly styled homes that are customized to their worldview.
WHAT TIPS ON PLANNING AND DESIGN ALWAYS REMAIN RELEVANT?
I believe in the correct combination of styles -- modern, classic, rustic, eclectic and Nordic – and the proportionate use of their various features.
Balancing a dominant color palette in combination with neutral background colors will enliven a space and fill it with energy.
Choosing local natural materials such as stone and glass, which are suitable for our climate, will render a design that will endure in a more qualitative and aesthetic way. Choosing a limited number of materials or using uniform and unique materials will allow you to create a clean, precise look. Then select accessories that will fit in with the design.
Don’t give in to trends. What is considered relevant and hot today may not be appropriate for your new home.
HOW DO YOU TURN AN ORDINARY LIVING SPACE INTO A COZY AND WELL-DESIGNED SPACE?
One of the strongest design elements in architecture is a harmonious combination of the home and the environment. In luxury homes, you often find large glass windows that bring the exterior inside while maintaining the continuity of the natural light that enters the house.
The design practice that currently dominates the design of luxury homes is minimalism -- emphasizing what is present through what is not.
And strong emphasis should be placed on the relationship between aesthetics and the functionality of the household’s daily life.
