    Default The 23.2 House by Omer Arbel

    Surrounded on all sides by a sweeping Canadian hayfield, the 23.2 House is an angular ode to rural life. Out of “respect for the beams and their history,” Designer Omer Arbel insisted that not a single reclaimed plank—still marked by nailheads and chipped paint—be cut nor altered during ­construction, which gave the home its striking geometric motif. It’s what he refers to as the “alchemy between ­material and process,” which also inspired the textured ­concrete walls and crisply milled walnut furniture.











    Walnut doors come together to form a corner in the entry foyer.




    Expansive accordion doors join together in a sharp angle when shut, but when they’re open the crook competely disappears—as does the barrier between outside and in.



    Sliding doors cast shadows across the concrete floor.

    Great house and you can tell children are welcome here.
    I am slightly nervous those books might fall over on them.
