pitsou kedem architects
have constructed an elegant private residence situated between two courtyards, flooding the home’s interior with natural light.
as a result ‘ramat hasharon house 13’, a brilliant white cubic volume, is able to form an intimate relationship with its surrounding environment.

on approaching the house, an elongated bridge crosses a sunken front courtyard and leads to a spacious double-height living area. central to the scheme, this six-meter high room shares a connection with both the front yard, and a larger garden at the rear of the design. with no supporting columns, the structure’s glazed façade opens entirely onto the courtyard, removing the division between internal and external space.

the project’s master bedroom is located on the second floor, overlooking the open-plan living quarters below. a perpendicular twenty meter pool protrudes from the rear of design, reflecting, and consequently emphasizing, the visual mass of the building.
