A jagged wall separating between two parts of a joint house site is far from being an optimistic start for any project. So is a relatively small site. We easily came to the conclusion that these two obstacles should not be present in the final design.
First, we designed the house so that the jagged neighbor was hidden behind the staircase and all the technical functions needed for the house. Then we focused on opening the house to the garden so the gap between indoor and outdoor was blurred. By that, enlarging the visual perception of the site's scale. the transparent family area, which hangs outside the house over the garden, gives a profound sense of outdoor sitting to whomever is using it. The wide balcony, which is an extension of the master bedroom, allows sitting outside while integrating with the nearby grove.
