Designed in 2013 by Pitsou Kedem Architects, this single-storey 5,920 sq ft residence is located in Tel Aviv, Israel.
Description by Pitsou Kedem Architects A one story, personal residence within the middle of the nation. The architectural idea was to create a construction with a steady, large area, divided by inner courtyards and movable partitions into smaller areas used for quite a lot of totally different features. The totally different areas and inner courtyards are joined collectively are joined collectively into one construction by two, extremely-skinny roofs supported at one central level so that appear to drift within the air. The 2 roofs merge, one into the opposite and prolong for 5 meters over the constructing entrance partitions. The whole roof is constructed from light-weight supplies and, with a purpose to present a skinny, wispy take a look at its edges, it’s constructed with a average slop in the direction of its middle. The construction itself is constructed from a collection of areas which are conceivably inner and conceivably exterior areas. The doorway is framed with a wall of picket slats which represent what could possibly be thought-about the preliminary boundary between the surface and the within. When getting into the area, we move via an area resembling an entrance foyer – once more, conceivably inner and conceivably exterior – which embodies the smooth seam between the inside and outside areas. While strolling by way of the doorway foyer area, we cross a clear pool, studded with giant basalt rocks and timber that appear to drift on the water. As we enter the doorway foyer, we expertise the phantasm that the home is floating and being mirrored, simply because the roof seems to be floating above the buildings partitions. A ribbon window operating alongside the constructing’s facades serves to emphasise the roof floating above the construction partitions and cancels out the sensation of mass that its measurement suggests. An extended, slender reflection pool follows the construction’s partitions, reflecting and emphasizing their overlaying and texture.
