Ramat Hasharon Home 13 by Pitsou Kedem Architects:
“A personal resident, created amongst 2, central courtyards.
A frontal courtyard excavated to a depth of 3 meters and the second courtyard at the level of the building’s ground floor. This topographical interface produces a special cross part to the building’s mass with every single element of the developing, even the section constructed as a basement, being open to its own courtyard.
The central room of the kitchen, the dining room and the residing space is open in 2 directions – to the west and to the east. This supplies a feeling that the space is consistently enveloped by organic light and the greenery of the trees in the courtyard.
The structure’s central space, set in the center of the plot, is accessed by way of a lengthy bridge that crosses the sunken courtyard and prospects to the front door. From the bridge, we can see the children’s residing rooms which open into the basement.
The house’s central room rises to a height of 6 meters (twenty feet) and is 17 meters (56 feet) long. There are no pillars in the space and the total front is transparent with glass windows that slide apart with the assist of an electrical motor. Therefore, the entire interior of the home opens into the courtyard and the border amongst inside and outdoors is cancelled. The swimming pool would seem as if it extends into the construction and, when hunting into the property from the courtyard, the residence in reflected in the pool which strengthens our impression of the building’s mass. The master bedroom is set on the second floor and opens onto the double room and the courtyard permitting for a view of the entire plot.
The structures 2 supporting side walls have been emphasized, one was poured from exposed, architectural concrete and on the other a massive library reaches to its full h7”
