Located near Tel Aviv, in an old part of Moshav Never Yarak, in the Sharon-the-Central region of Israel, this impressive house is another one of STAV‘s creative designs. The Israeli architectural firm was asked to design a modern space with a home-like atmosphere. It wasn’t a very difficult project, especially considering the location of the house and the fact that it’s surrounded on three sides by 50 year-old vegetation.
The surrounding vegetation provides privacy for the owners of the house and also creates a very beautiful natural environment and allows the users to enjoy the views. The house had to be modern, so the architects working at the project decided to create a contrast between the low, wide, horizontal space and a tall, narrow vertical staircase that has a dramatic look, especially when lit by the high positioned windows.
The house has a rectangular shape and the rooms are functionally positioned, according to their use. The private and the public areas of the house are practically separated from each other to ensure privacy. The house also features a swimming pool, perfect for the hot days of summer. The pool is perceived as a horizontal place, perpendicular to the rectangular volume of the house. In the end, the result was just what the owners wanted: a modern, comfortable and cozy place that they can call home.
