From the architect. The house was planned for musicians who wanted a deconstructive building, in the midst of an avocado grove. 

We tried to minimize the number of trees we had to clear.

The plan required the space of six trees, but unfortunately we discovered that a 7th tree was to sick to survive, so we enlarged the porch.

Large openings were designed towards the north and south, ideal in Israeli weather. 

We used a large, inclined concrete roof to shade the openings, as well as the large trees.

There's much to admire in this house. I really enjoy that while the home structure has a definite artistic point of view, it is still restrained in a way that lets the architecture of the home and the views out the window really shine. It has a very nice design like those presented at http://www.premiumlifestyles.c...

You're right. Strong architecture that celebrates everyday human activity and nature equally. Look how the vegetable garden is featured (even if it might not be a permanent asset). Fine work!
