From the architect. The house is situated on a six acre agricultural plot in Sde Yizhak, a village in the coastal plain of Israel. The landscape of the area is fairly flat and anonymous with no special focal points. Planning in a vast, seemingly endless landscape, a rare situation in the densely populated center of Israel. Our design focused on the relationship between the house and the landscape, defining its space, while at the same time blurring the borders between the house and its surroundings.

The house is placed on an imaginary axis running from the village to a focal point we created on the horizon. The main living spaces – living room, family room and kitchen are concentrated around the core of the house, an open patio facing the landscape. This patio connects these spaces and forms an outdoor living room, typical in Mediterranean architecture. We decided to place the master bedroom a second floor, creating a metaphoric attic connected to the house by an indoor and outdoor staircase with a terrace overlooking the patio.

The building mass is deconstructed from a solid mass in the front into a punctured plane that folds round the northern edge of the house giving the house a different dimension from the one perceived during the approach. This plane draws a guideline of the house, creating a covered space mediating between the house and its surroundings and framing views of the agricultural landscape and the sky.

Guys,
Every project has a context; restraints,challenges.
Site. Budget.Purpose. Tastes. Time Frame. Materials.
This is ever so important esp in the context of individual residences. So stop looking at every built form through 'isms' all the time.If you can't be encouraging, don't be condscending/rude.

beautiful! amazing modern, wish people did the bauhaus throwback a bit more often - loved the light cut outs in the walls and roof over the porch, very clean and minimal

up_today_arch · March 16, 2010

It is profesional... Honesty, it is not my style, I don't like constructivism any more, but it is good work and clear architecture...

Observer · March 15, 2010

A poorly executed throwback to bauhaus modernism. I'm afraid I agree with boxcutter on this one. Moving along, nothing to see here....

Arquipablo · March 15, 2010

I think planimetric is right...

bLogHouse · March 15, 2010

any house can be someone's dream house. if this someone is homeless..
This project has one distinctive feature - it consists of two parts - the first (two-story) is as interesting as the other is boring.

Zach · March 16, 2010 02:11 AM

why the rudeness? i'm not homeless and this house's design certainly appeals to me, i love the simplicity - personally i'm tired of how overdone a lot of designs are these days. maybe not my dream home per se but it fits beautifully with the property

Noam A. · March 14, 2010

Wow...
That is probably someones dream-house...
Such clean lines, simple and complicated all together.
The Architects did a great job on that one!
I think a gardener should be considered though :-)

Nice work.
