Privet House

Status: Under construction

Year: 2015

Location: Carmit, IL

Floor Area: 250 M²



In a new town in the south of Israel, a private house on 3 levels for a family of nine was design with two main themes:

– Personal security – which has made openings, fenestration and bars significant elements in the design of the building’s façade system.

– Accessibility – which led to design decisions that allow for a comfortable lifestyle for all members of the household

The house is set on 3 levels, but the public spaces are set up on the ground floor in a double height space with a 1st floor gallery – allowing for eye contact between the two levels. The public spaces revolve around a patio facing the surroundings and garden, but can be closed for security by a folding gate.
