Jerusalem historian calls for home renovation inspired by her work

In Ramat Gan, Israel, a family of Israeli interior designers Chen Shadi to renovate their 1980s home into a modern three-story home inspired by the wife’s work as a historian specializing in Old Jerusalem. The family requested that the house celebrate Armenian art in Jerusalem and incorporate a more contemporary floor plan that accommodates different needs.

Shadmi and the family began the design process with a tour of Old Jerusalem to visit the woman’s favorite places and learn about materials common to homes in Eastern Europe. They asked Armean Darian, an Armenian ceramist based in Jerusalem, to hand paint the illustrations on the tiles seen on the ground floor pillar and the stairs leading to the first floor.
