The LB House is a private residence located in Israel. It was completed in 2016 by Shachar- Rozenfeld architects and it offers a total of 600 square meters of living space. The building occupies a site with a trapezoidal shape situated right next to a small green park populated with ancient Eucalyptus trees. The clients wanted the park to look like a continuation of their own private garden and the design of the house and its surroundings were planned accordingly.
The building has two floors and an L shape. It wraps around a lap pool framing it on two sides. At the same time, the house is facing the park, featuring full height windows towards the garden and sliding glass doors designed to link the interior living spaces to the outdoor spaces and to establish a seamless transition between them.
The longer side of the L-shaped floor plan measures 28 meters in length and contains the social spaces: the living and dining areas and the kitchen. The shorter section of the residence houses the master bedroom. In between these two wings there’s a double-height space which acts as a lobby and transition space. Full height windows on both wings offer direct access to the garden and poolside area from both the living space and the bedroom.
A beautiful design feature is the fact that the house has open corners. By that we mean that there are no solid columns or walls in the living room and bedroom corners. They’re completely wrapped in glass and this allows panoramic and uninterrupted views to be admired
The black kitchen has a long island with a table extension. It stands out and it contrasts with the living area which is decorated with light and neutral tones. The wooden floors balance out the color palette and make the decor more inviting and comfortable. They blend well with the breezy white curtains. A dark chromatic palette was also used in the dining area where the decor is both simple and sophisticated.
The upper floor has a smaller floor plan than the lower level. It houses four children’s suits and a set of rooftop terraces. The transition is made via a narrow hallway with floating wooden stairs.
