Modern Israeli Home Conveniently Built Between Two Yards
By Freshome.com - Interior Design & Architecture Magazine on Aug 29, 2013
When it comes to this highly contemporary home in Israel by the architects at Pitsou Kedem, nothing seems common or run-of-the-mill. A front courtyard excavated to a depth of three meters and a second courtyard at the level of the building’s ground level flank the house. “This provides a feeling that the space is constantly enveloped by natural light and the greenery of the trees“, explained the architects. A narrow infinity pool contributes to the overall geometric feel of the property.
The most striking element of the space is probably the six-meter-high living area. A close second is the facade — nothing but glass windows that slide apart with the aid of an electric motor, so the entire interior of the home opens into the courtyard, eliminating the border between inside and outside. All the rooms are glazed from floor to ceiling, offering unobstructed views of the courtyards and swimming pool.
