conceived by neuman hayner architects, this generously sized and inviting home in tel aviv is formed by two cubed volumes, connected by a passageway to result in a L-shaped floorplan. realized for a family of four with enough space to host visitors, the first volume holds the open-plan communal areas – the lounge, kitchen, dining and entrance – and a mezzanine level above the kitchen used for a study.

the building itself is a combination of concrete and steel, with large openings on each side to ensure minimal artificial light is required throughout the day. in order to blend the interior with the surrounding landscape, the design team placed an emphasis on the open-plan spaces featuring floor-to-ceiling sliding doors that lead out and face the large patio and private swimming pool.

the other wing is accessed through a four-meter wide hallway. comprised of three-storeys, the ground floors contain an additional lounge, two children rooms, laundry and guest rooms. the next floor up holds the master suite with its own terrace area and a bridge that is connected to the library. the interior color palettes is a selection of subdued tones of greys, whites, and blacks. warmth is added and contrasted by the richness of the timber and bamboo detailing seen on the stairs and furniture.
