Mount Carmel House by Heidi Arad Architects

By Freshome.com - Interior Design & Architecture Magazine on Jul 22, 2012

modern residence 22 Sustainable Modern Architecture Overlooking the Mediterranean Sea in Israel

This imposing contemporary home located on the shores of the Mediterranean Sea, on the southern slope of Mount Carmel in Israel, was designed by Heidi Arad Architects and pays tribute to sustainable architecture. With a total living area of 250 square meters, the residence showcases an elegant exterior, dominated by a white color, partially disrupted by wooden cladding. The project is opened towards the sea, with the help of glass sliding doors. Once inside, a potential visitor is likely to be impressed by the stylish interiors and modern decorations. The principles of sustainable architecture were cleverly adapted to the overall design: ventilation is ensured in a natural way through panoramic windows, rainwater is collected in a special tank and used for household purposes, and natural materials are used throughout. How would you personally comment on this project, in relationship to its natural landscape and cultural environment?
