This house has wonderful panoramic views from all of its rooms, an undeniable privilege that automatically turns it into a special place. It has wooden shutters that slide adjusting to the position of the sun, providing privacy as well as shade, filtering the intense rays of the sun that pass through its windows.
It has been designed by the architectural firm Golany Architects, led by the architects Yaron Golany and Galit Golany, and is located in Tel-Aviv, Israel. Completed in 2016, the home occupies a total ground area of 200 meters of the lot’s total 500 square meters.
The installed lattices block the views towards the interior and maintain privacy while allowing those inside the opportunity to enjoy the landscape from the comfortable interior. Windows and doors are recessed to improve climate control, creating intermediate spaces in the shaded areas out of doors. Even during the hot summer days, these measures keep the house cool and pleasant.
It was a challenge to design this residence and maintain visual continuity from the site to the horizon. The residence is designed on two floors, conserving meters of outdoor area and allowing the outdoor space to breathe. Both the house and the garden are level to obtain optimal view distance, fusing with the surrounding landscape.
