The prominent internal/ external relations in the design is expressed by pulling the roof beyond the structure’s contour, creating shade in the external sitting area. An analysis of the sun’s rays during the day determined the angles of the round light openings in the concrete ceiling, that serves as a built pergola. Each one of the openings is in a different angle, in order to maximize the shading in the sitting area.
Discovery/ concealing: an additional architectural concept that characterizes Dan and Hila Israelevits Architects is the design that is partially concealed, while the house is revealed as the time goes by, while walking into the space. The house’s façade has more to it than meets the eye; the wooden grillwork covers up what’s behind and what it is used for, and the main entrance door is embedded into the vertical wooden grill that covers the whole structure. Narrow rectangular windows characterize the first floor, up to the western facet, which is totally open to the view.
The fluidity of the design continues inside, thanks to an open plan interior, unbroken views and reams of natural light, which streams throughout the space all day long. On the ground floor, the spacious living room transitions into a dining area and loft-style kitchen. Rather than close off individual floors, the design incorporates a double height open space that allows the eyes to travel, delivering a glimpse of the bedrooms above or, from the first floor, to the living room below.
