a six-storey town house has been constructed in tel aviv, offering its occupants a connection with the city, but also providing the privacy and seclusion desired of a residential project. israeli office pitsou kedem architects have maximized a 270 square meter plot within the urban block, crafting a series of levels which share both physical and visual relationships.

below, each floor accommodates a different function, fully utilizing the space available. separate storeys for parents and children ensure privacy, while a common lounge area is intended to bring the whole family together. a guest suite is housed at the ground floor behind a wood paneled entrance. the stairwell runs vertically throughout the building and is designed to be an important part of the spaces it connects, sitting against a grey silicate blocked wall.
