    Default House K in Israel

    House K by Auerbach Halevy Architects

    Israeli architectural firm Auerbach Halevy Architects has completed the House K project, a three story contemporary home located in a rural areal in Israel. In HOUSE K the pre-cast concrete panels participate in the interior design, dictate the rhythm in the house and affect its scale. The same system of dimensions was used by the architect in the exterior dismantle of the cube mass, and for the interior of the house, as a guide for furniture layout and decorative objects. This idea goes all the way to the fine details up to the design of the book’s shelves. The unique appearance of the house, therefore, expresses locality, although it relies on seemingly contradictory sources. Combining the exposed concrete elements with the trellis wooden work, creates a unified and coherent language, and produces complexity. This combination of elements transcends beyond the contrasting and complementary nature of the materials, resolves the symbolic collision produced by the components, and therefore creating a unity between tradition Arab style and modernist building.

    Not as bad as it could have been, based on the exterior. I like the concrete slab interior wall but the shiny accent walls are horrible. Strangely, it feels like a livable space - not as cold as one would expect.
