From the architect. An interplay of walls/windows, shadow and light, inside/outside construct the experience of the Herzlia house. The exterior walls and interior glass of this house enclose exterior spaces and blur the definitions of interior and exterior. The house is a composition of two geometries: The geometry of the exterior envelope reflects the bordering streets; the geometry of the interior envelope is orthogonal and responds to the functional restraints.

The exterior envelope encloses exterior spaces, creating a sense of spaciousness as well as blurring the distinction between inside/outside. The in-between spaces: The terrace underneath the pergola, the pool and the English garden hold two affinities, interior and exterior. Indoor they are read as a continuation of the interior space; they expand and enrich the interior space. Outdoors they are exterior climate - protected areas.

The slot between the floors adds to the choreography of the walls appreciating of light and shadow. The ground floor's footprint is larger than the second's floor in a way that a visitor confronts one story high building. The first floor floats over the ground floor enhancing the horizontal dimension of the house. Ribbon windows wrap the house. The corner windows bring together two glasses without columns as another reassurance of the in-out continuation.

The landscape was also developed pursuing search for continuity: The white poplars appear both in front and in the back of the house. The house seeks to promote a sense of spaciousness by blurring the definition of exterior and interior.
