                                Spanning 150 square meters, the <a href="https://thisisit.design/gvhouse"  rel="nofollow noopener external noreferrer" data-wpel-link="external">GV House</a> was bought by a young family looking to update the early 1980s residence located in Givatayim, Israel. They hired <a href="https://thisisit.design/"  rel="nofollow noopener external noreferrer" data-wpel-link="external">THISISIT Architecture &amp; Design</a> to handle the renovation that involved designing an interior that better worked for their lifestyle.
The couple’s goal was to use materials that would respect the integrity of the house while also giving it a fresh update. A brass faucet and baseboard in the kitchen were used to match the thin brass bars that were installed within the terrazzo floors and concrete stairs like grout. The black cabinets and countertops offer a modern contrast to the brass details. Just off the kitchen is an enclosed sunroom that captures lots of sunlight and leads to the backyard. Brass furnishings bring a cohesive feel throughout the main floor. The bathrooms also benefitted from brass detailing adding a polished finish to the newly

Check into <a href="https://thekrane.dk/"  rel="nofollow noopener external noreferrer" data-wpel-link="external">THE KRANE</a>, a modern, minimalist hotel for two that&#8217;s located in an old coal crane on the Nordhavn harbor in Copenhagen. Owner Klaus Kastbjerg and architect Mads Møller from <a href="http://arcgency.com/"  rel="nofollow noopener external noreferrer" data-wpel-link="external">Arcgency</a> retrofitted the crane so that it&#8217;s become a multi-sensory experience for anyone staying there. Plus, the raised crane offers panoramic views of the city, harbor, and sky, that are unlike any other.
THE KRANE also offers itself as a meeting room for anyone who wants to rent it out. That glass-enclosed space features light Dinesen wooden floors and black furnishings. The interior is finished in all black as a way to not distract from the surrounding views. The architect worked with Dinesen for the black flooring, ceiling, and walls, which are all covered with Douglas planks that were finished with a special ‘megablack’ oil

The renovation comprises affordable materials right off the shelf, which helped keep costs and lead times down on the project. The compact footprint resulted in a hallway on one side that connects the rooms but keeps them separate. It also keeps the sight line open from the front door straight through to the back doors. Sliding doors that match the siding close for additional privacy. The perforated sliding doors allow light and fresh air to penetrate the interior while also adding a layer of privacy. The kitchen is kept minimal with subtle wooden cabinets on the lowers and black cabinets against black walls
