This private house in an agricultural village in the Hefer valley sits on a large, 16 dunam plot. The design emphasis was on integrating the new additions to the existing family house from the 60s in such a way as to retain the character of the house on the street side and to give the private side towards the garden a new and modern character.
A large steel and glass box was inserted between an existing tool shack and the house, creating the new public areas and entrance for the house. The entire interior was remodeled to accommodate the new living program. An additional ‘box’ was added for the master bedroom. A continuous pergola and wooden deck connects these new elements to the existing house, providing shaded sitting places around the new pool and the long views into the agricultural landscape.
