How do you imagine the perfect workspace? Israeli architect Ranaan Stern designed and implemented a modular artist’s studio in Tel Aviv exhibiting clever storage solutions. The original looking apartment features 2 desks, 36 drawers, modular storage compartments and pegboard display walls. And if at some point the owners feel tired, they can just bring down the folding bed and come up with new ideas after a soothing nap.

Although the exterior seems not to reveal much on the contents of the drawers, everything is perfectly organized: “The artist creates and collects different kinds of art pieces, most are 2D but also some small sculptures, books and old materials. We needed different kinds of storage units, different sizes and different ways of keeping the new and old pieces“, explained Ranaan Stern. Moreover, each tool category is represented by a certain color, exposed only when one opens a drawer or any other storage unit. The closets and units are made of white birch, perfectly complementing the flooring, which is covered in bright birch tiles.
