Text description provided by the architects. K-house is a family unit which is a segment of a row house which was built in the 50’s for the working class under a social ideology of low cost and simplicity.

Section 3

At the present, this neighborhood of Tel Aviv which contains several models of this row house is being rejuvenated due to a new urban building scheme. As a result, the original apartments are permitted an additional volume which converts a 65m2 apartment on one level to a 200m2 on 2 levels with a pitched roof.

The main challenge was to design a narrow apartment of considerable length which stretches out between 2 opposite facades. The entrance level consists of a family zone animated by natural light coming from a set of round skylights, which offers a playful interaction between this level and the balcony above. In addition to a cluster of 4 bedrooms, this level contains a working area which is integrated into an articulated staircase to the upper floor.

The public level on the top floor features an open kitchen lit by a strip of skylight crossing the metal and wood construction of the pitched roof. The kitchen which consists of a shared cooking/dining island, is adjacent to the living space and opens up to a wooden decked balcony which embraces the outdoor greenery.
