Bar Orian Architects have designed this elegant contemporary home, which covers a total area of 250 square meters, in Tel Aviv, Israel.
The project was completed in 2016.
The exterior of the home is characterized by pale concrete walls and wooden shutters that cover all windows – both ingenious and stylish ways to counter the scorching heat and sun of Tel Aviv. The greenery around it serves the same purpose, while helping give the home an extra touch of privacy and adding to its aesthetic appearance.
Its interior is wide open, with floors of polished concrete and clear white walls. All of this comes together to give it an extra sense of space and adding to its airy quality. Although the interior doesn’t lack in decorative accessories, they are few in number, an aesthetic choice that keeps the overall effect from looking too busy but still feeling like a private home.
Wooden steps carry us to the upper level, which features the same color palette and style of design, creating a sense of continuity.
Though while closed the wooden shutters keep the heat out, while open they allow the abundant sunlight to seep in – I can almost feel the breeze moving through the room!
