Modern Home in Israel Puts Open Living Spaces at the Forefront

It is the landscape, the views on offer and the neighborhood that often define the silhouette of the house and the balance between privacy and ‘openness’ when it comes to design. Nestled in Kibbutz Yehiam, Israel, The Rosenberg Ricky & Golan Home tends to veer more towards the latter with its unique design that blurs the conventional boundaries between the interior and the world outside. Designed by SO Architecture, it is two large boxes that make up the overall design of the residence, with the one on the ground providing partial support for the second box above. A steel frame also provides additional support, creating an open living area that contains the kitchen and dining room.

The solid stone structure on the base level contains the children’s rooms, along with the safe room and other service spaces. The more open, sheltered area holds the patio, living area and kitchen and is connected with the outdoor dining and lounging area. A sculptural steel staircase leads to the top floor, where one finds the master suite and an equally spacious deck that offers unabated views of the scenic landscape outside. Sliding glass doors, a neutral color scheme and unassuming interiors ensure that the sights and sounds outside end up stealing the spotlight at this ingenious contemporary home.

Inside the house, length , width and opened views are created from the front door to the landscape, in the opposite direction from the patio, which is located in the covered in stone volume toward the outdoor kitchen. The design allows constant invasion of the greenery and the view to the inside of the house, while maintaining privacy.
