It is hard to avoid the massive presence of the large wooden box floating over this house's garden. It is a complicated technological challenge which stretches the constructional bounderies to their edge."Hidden" on the second floor is the small terrace planted beside the box. Though almost hidden and in spite of her modesty,her presence is as important as the main garden. The garden supplements the big "Plus" with a small gracefull "Minus". The positive-negetive relationship between them both is fertilizing and they complete each other creating a functioning whole living system.
Achieving balance is not always creating equal
The big box fully shades the outer deck and the outdoor lounge, out of consideration of the Israeli warm climate. The small garden is an ease and pleasant relaxing area beside the box.
