Project size: 8,300 square feet

Program: This single-family residence is housed within two perpendicular rectilinear volumes.

Location: Kfar Shmaryahu, Tel Aviv, Israel

Solution: A white metal fence featuring geometric motifs meanders across the house’s perimeter, defining a series of partially enclosed areas serving as buffer zones between inside and out. The fence features a system of pivoting doors that allows light and air into the interior when open; when closed, geometric shadows are created on the house’s concrete surfaces. The same pattern is incorporated into interior design elements, such as a metal wall that acts as a perforated balustrade for a floating staircase.

Construction and materials: The structural frame is concrete.
