Rauchwerger Residence

Interior Design Studio | Instructor: Arch. Guy Re Moor

The project takes place at the Liebling House, located in Idelson street in Tel Aviv. This area is known as The White city, which is famous for its International Style buildings. Liebling House was built by Tony and Max Liebling in 1936, it was designed by architect Dov Karmi and engineer Tzvi Barak with distinctive characteristics of the international style. In addition, it has the practical effect of screening out the heat of the Mediterranean sun. Its careful renovation began in 2017.

The project offers residence, an art studio and an exhibition hall, and draws its inspiration from the human body: the existing walls are the skeleton and the interior design functions as the skin. The project is named after our resident, the Israeli artist Jan Rauchwerger. 

Rauchwerger born in 1942 in Turkmenist and immigrated to Israel in 1978. He studied in the graphic design department of the Moscow Polygraphic Institute and was a student of Russian artist Vladimir Weisberg. In the 70s, Rauchwerger taught art at the Avni School of Art in Tel Aviv. In the 80s, he taught at The High School of Painting in Tel Aviv as well as at the Bezalel Academy of Art and Design in Jerusalem. In 2007, he received the coveted Rappaport Prize for an Established Israeli Artist.


The residence of Jan Rauchwerger is located on the second floor, at the back of the building. Rauchwerger is the manager of the art studio located on the first floor at the front of the building facing Idelson St. The studio offers painting and sculpting lessons while leveraging the rich light conditions of the building. We created a unique path between the residence and the studio, at the point which we identified in the plan as a joint. The path leads to our art gallery on the second floor. The gallery invites the public to experience art exhibitions by Rauchwerger, which revolve around the everyday of houses and interiors, nudes, still life and domestic animals.

Similarly to Rauchwerger’s paintings, which are characterized by pastel colors, warmth and intimacy, our design uses skin tones, soft light and a variety of materials and textures that create an environment inspired by the human body.
