The Kfar Shmaryahu House – a Minimalist Creation, with a Vivid Soul
The Kfar Shmaryahu House is designed by Pitsou Kedem Architects and it is located in Israel. It portrays a family modern residence in an urban environment.
The house looks rather to an office building, a block of flats, a rather impersonal creation. But it is in fact a three-dimensional building in which all the details are well and harmoniously composed, creating a flux of positive energy for body and soul. The blinds that mask the façade can be lifted upwards whilst they are folded into what resembles a roof. The swimming pool invites you to relax and offers a perfect view through the large windows. All the interiors open separately and so allow for different compositions, each room having its own personality. The rooms are simple and minimalist furnished, a blackboard completing the furniture from the living space, combining in this way work with pleasure and relaxation.
All the spaces are characterized by a restrained use of materials and form, so the penetration of the light induces energy, dynamism, pleasant elements among the silence of the walls. The kitchen seems wide opened, because of the large glass door, creating the impression that you serve your lunch on the edge of the swimming pool. Light projects different shades on the walls and the house becomes vivid and happy.
