Galina Maly Interior Design has been shortlisted for Cityspace – Global Award in The International Design and Architecture Awards 2021.
This penthouse residence by Galina Maly Interior Design is located in the centre of Netanya. Uniquely designed as a contemporary residence, it takes inspiration from the environment, and offers all the features one would expect and a few that surpass every expectation.
Benefitting from being situated on the 28th floor of a high-rise residential tower in the centre of the city, and also from the uninterrupted views of the Mediterranean Sea, Galina Maly Interior Design focussed on providing the client with a comfortable living space for his growing family and at the same time a showstopper that embraces its unique offerings.
Though the vision for Galina Maly was immediate, the process was lengthy. The designers moved walls and floors, and with the outstanding vision of the architect added a mezzanine level to the existing box. Aspects of the design continually changed as the client’s family grew. The main floor consists of the living/dining areas, kitchen and powder room. Separated from the main space is a guest suite. On the other side of the property is the spacious master suite with soaring four-meter ceilings and own terrace overlooking the sea, as well as a gallery, dressing room and an ensuite bathroom and WC. A floating staircase leads to the mezzanine level with a bar, cinema and hidden balcony behind one of the upholstered panels. On the roof terrace is a pool with an adjacent summer kitchen, a massage room, and a sauna.
One of Galina Maly’s favourite aspects is the design of the living space, where the striking voluminous features are celebrated. The opulent open-plan space was created with the client’s love of hosting in mind. The kitchen can be closed off from the dining area with the innovative pocket doors, and a striking but very delicate bespoke light installation flows from one space into another. This project required a lot of bespoke intervention including lighting, millwork, upholstery and furniture.
Working with the client’s dislike of dead spaces, the project feels spacious but never bare. Tranquil, yet dramatic. Subtle and seductive drama is achieved by careful layering of bold elements over subtle ones, textures and finishes that complement each other. There are few colours in this project, but a variety of textures and finishes inspired by the surroundings add depth to the scheme.
