They say that how a child plays and interacts with his surroundings is a strong indicator of what he’ll do in the future. Not surprisingly, as a child, I was already captivated by design. I paid close attention to never-ending skyscrapers in my native city, Tel Aviv, and I carefully studied unique old homes that I passed on my route home from school – playing “make believe” about how I would modernize the ancient structures. From morning until night, I felt this unbreakable connection to the buildings that made up my world.
Fast forward many years, and that eye for design has blossomed into my passion and career – architecture. And with every new project, I still feel a bit of that childhood wonder. I can’t quite explain it, but the ability to create an abstract vision, and then fill in every single detail until that dream materializes, is really special to me.
One of my latest projects has been especially fulfilling. I was tasked with re-imagining a home in Los Angeles’ Nichols Canyon – a stimulating, creative endeavor in itself, but partnering with Bosch on this project was the cherry on top!
