Renovation of a single-family house in Hod Hasharon. Before the renovation, the house was country-style, dark and old-fashioned. The entrance floor was re-designed along with the outdooor developing of the plot, while opening a new windows and creating full inside-outside connection. Changing the layout of the first floor according to the needs of the family, and Adding a second floor attic as a bedroom for the eldest daughter.

My favorite area in the house is the family lounge, originally there was closed wall, and I decided to open a huge window with a bench underneath with storage. I moved the olive tree from the entrance of the lot to the center of the new window. The window frames the tree as a picture, so we decided not to add curtains to that window.

Another space that I love is the boys’ study area on the first floor. An open space next to the staircase, where I designed a library of random cubes in three finishes white-balck-oak combined with a desk.

The colors chosen for the house are very calm, combining a great deal of wood and shades of blue and gray.

It was important for the owners to keep a very practical home with lots of storage space and still get a warm, modern, up-to-date home that matches the character of the family.

Private Villa Tel Aviv designed by Lissoni Architettura with Tehila Shelef Architects


Location: Tel Aviv, Israel

Year: 2017



Architects: Lissoni Architettura 

Photography: © Amit Geron


Designed by Lissoni Architettura with Tehila Shelef Architects, this villa reveals an austere design with a pronounced orthogonal geometry and at first sight appears as a pavilion floating on water. Purposely simplified, the L-shaped volumetry is inspired by modern architecture and is distinguished by walls with scaled-down openings to the outside and large windows towards the softer forms of the garden. The terrain was designed to accommodate the house, which is protected from the outside with concrete walls incorporating windows of an essential architectural design. The volumetry of the architecture is recomposed in a vision of total purity.

Villa V by Baranowitz Kronenberg Architects

Location: Tel Aviv, Israel

Year: 2016



Architects: Baranowitz Kronenberg Architects

Photography: Amit Geron



VILLA V. IS HOMAGE TO THE ‘WHITE CITY’ ARCHITECTURE OF TEL AVIV; SIMPLE MASSING AND A RICH PLAY OF SUN AND SHADE WHICH EMBRACES THE MEDITERRANEAN BREEZE.
IT IS A HOME RATHER THAN A HOUSE, A PLACE FOR LIVING WHERE MEMORIES ARE MADE AND LIFE IS CELEBRATED WITH FAMILY AND FRIENDS.
AN L SHAPE LAYOUT CONFIGURATION HOLDS MOST OF ITS SOCIAL PROGRAMS WHILE THE MASTER BEDROOM IS DESIGNED AS A HOME AWAY FROM HOME, CONNECTED BY A BRIDGE TO THE “MAIN-LAND”, SELF- SUSTAINED WITH ITS OWN GARDEN AND POOL.
THE LOWER LEVEL OF THE HOUSE FOLLOWS THE SAME L SHAPE AND HOLDS THE BEDROOM SUITES OF THE FAMILY MEMBERS WHO ENJOY AN INTIMATE INNER COURTYARD OPEN TO THE SKY. CROSSED OVER BY WHAT ONLY APPEARS AS A SPANNING MIRROR; THE OWNER’S BRIDGE BOTTOM IS IN POLISHED STAINLESS STEEL WHICH DILUTES COMPLETELY THE PRESENCE OF WEIGHT CROSSING THE COURTYARD, AND ADDS A FANTASTIC REALM OF IMAGERIES TO THE INTERIOR AND EXTERIOR SPACES.

The residence in built in an active avocado plantation. The clients asked for a deconstructive, non-conventional home, while we also limited the number of avocado trees cut to be minimal. The final chosen design surprised us all, as it differs from the rest of our works.

Residence in the Galilee by Golany Architects

This slideshow requires JavaScript.


Location: Galilee, Israel
Built area: 200 sqm
Lot area: 500 sqm
Project year: 2017



Architects: Golany Architects
Lead Architects: Galit Golany, Yaron Golany
Photographs: Amit Geron, and Golany Architects (04,09,11,13,17,20,21,23,24b)



When Golany Architects approached the design of this residence in the Galilee, they took upon themselves the challenge of maximizing the potential of the lot at the edge of a village, overlooking the open wide landscape, adorned by the Sea of Galilee.

The desire was for the residence to embrace and engage with the ancient landscape. Therefore, it was important to maintain an unobstructed continuity between the lot and its surroundings. To determine the exact level of the house, the architects and clients went to the empty lot, where they climbed a ladder to check for the level at which the Sea of Galilee can first be seen. The level of the house was then carefully determined for a minimal rise above ground level to provide far views, while still avoiding any retaining walls or barriers, despite the mountainous terrain.

The living areas which are located on the ground level, are continued by the garden that seems to extend towards the horizon, through the fields, and all the way to the Sea of Galilee. The actual size of the lot is only 500 sqm, so in order to leave enough living outdoor area, the house was split into two floors. The bedrooms and family room, adjoined with a pergola covered terrace, are on the first floor, where they are open to the sweeping view above the treetops.

Sustainable and environmental considerations were taken into account. The generous openings facing the view to the south and east, require the provision of shading and filtering against the intense sun, which is provided by the wooden shutters. The shutters slide in adjustment to the position of the sun.

The shutter lattices, as typical of Mediterranean mashrabiya, block views inwards and maintain privacy, while allowing one to enjoy the scenery from the inside. The light rays penetrating through the slits create a magical, ever-changing atmosphere in the interior anytime the sun illuminates the shutters.

The large windows and doors on both levels of the house are recessed from the shutters’ outer façade. The double-skin envelope, created that way, significantly improves the climate control of the house and thus – as the clients indicated – despite the heavy heat, typical to this region of the Jordan Valley slopes, the house stays cool and pleasant even during the hottest days of summer.

Between the glazed doors and the shutters, intermediate spaces are created – kind of outdoor rooms – enabling to sit outside in the fresh country air while still maintaining the privacy and intimacy of the inside. The intermediate spaces can be closed by the wooden shutters, rendering it an integral part of the interior, while at the same time being outdoors. At the ground level, the covered balcony that serves as an outdoor living room extends the living and dining areas, while an indoor-outdoor balcony on the first floor extends the family room.

In the bedrooms, between the two layers of the house envelope – the windows and the shutters – small balconies are created. The balconies, with their vertical proportions – as a contemporary interpretation of the traditional balcony – provide unobstructed continuity of the close view (the private garden), mid view (the village fields) and far view (the Sea of Galilee and the Golan Heights). Carefully positioned openings on the rear elevations also capture views of Mount Canaan and the old town of Safed.

The house aims to integrate into the pastoral surroundings. The yellowish-brown ridge at the front, the rugged soil and the Olive and Carob groves around it where horses graze, led to the choice of the materials: matching colors for the cement textured plaster and the timber shutters outside, light brown stone for the paving inside, and the wooden ceiling with its massive beams.

The cypress tree at the corner of the lot, the oak tree by the living room window and other mature trees were preserved during construction, and the house was built among them.  Amid the rocks, rosemary, lavender and spice plants with local fragrance were planted. The house was designed to capture the ambiance of the environment and was built out of elements that originate from it.

 The office principals are the husband and wife team, Yaron Golany and Galit Golany. Both studied at the Faculty of Architecture and Town Planning at the Technion – Israel Institute of Technology, where Yaron graduated in 1987 and Galit in 1989. Golany Architects is the direct continuation of the work they began in 1991 in their firms Lavie-Golany Architects and Town Planners and Galit Golany Architects.

 Galit and Yaron have spent seven years working in the UK and Australia, where parallel to work on innovative architectural projects, they also taught Architecture at the University of Melbourne and RMIT. Yaron Golany also writes about architecture, and he is the author of “A Gate to Architecture”, a widely read book that has been published in Hebrew by ZBM-Dvir publishers.

The creation of a line, this birth of the visual act, has been a meeting point throughout history of art, science and technology- from the dawn of writing to the abstractness of cave drawings and the penning of mathematical formulas – all of them make use of graphics to express a novel idea.

A line on a dark background- short or long, thin or thick – sometimes- expresses orientation or movement, at times convergence or divergence, pain and freedom, connection  or physical repulsion. It is one of the most fascinating of its properties – that the very border, which a line draws also permanently breaks worlds in two. A single lines simultaneously divides and connects separate worlds- each one onto himself.

Viewed from the front, The house looks like a monolithic operation of materials with a deep, monochromatic range of colors. Three rectangular prisms, lain upon one another, into a peaceful composition, stable and subdued, appearing as heavy masses.

A second, discerning  glance reveals a dramatic encounter of materials taken from two separate worlds  – poured, massive concrete and glass panels, creating a semitransparent wall with a decisive line running through it.

The variations of opaque glass yields a colossal appearance of yet more concreteness unifying the building’s construction- yet still natural. The glass acts to embrace the light – allowing it to pour in, controlling its every move. Thus a screen of  light is rendered in the most literal way- a receptive canvas of variation, deep and dynamic, adapting to those who pass through its rays of light.

Within the remaining glass of the structure- the line returns with the force of a quill- emphasizing the movements of the eastern facade, painting an exposed, clear slice withing the southern facade in which the utilization of transparent windows has been executed. Thus while the front facade is an abstract creation conceptually assuring the blending of identity and function, the rear facade graphically expresses three-dimensionality, the probing of depth and the feeling of brightness and freedom.

A glance at the side facades explains the process of exposure and  illumination beginning at the opaque facade facing the road and leading to the facades facing the yard and pool. A gradient of inter-changing levels of transparency between characteristically different facades made of the same foundation stones.

The entrance to the home occurs on the western side at the patio garden starting from the basement leading to the living rooms, accompanying visitors by degrees from the outer to the inner worlds.

The living rooms are  double in size and face the southern gardens visible from a library entrance on the same level as the private rooms. Two staircases lead to the living areas, one descending to the children’s area and another ascending to two additional levels- one containing the children’s living rooms and another with the parents rooms.

Two yards run along the children’s quarters, one is a patio ascending to the entrance and the other runs along the eastern side providing light, air, and an abundance of privacy. The function of the floor- corners for sitting, a private yard, and personal gym- attest to the private world of children.

The design of the space and their dispersal upon four planes creates in each one a sense of maximal privacy and although none is entirely exposed each of them comfortably access the exterior. Thus a structure of concrete and glass of various transparencies is created, the materials stray between one another as the visitor strays between the structure itself.
