Modern Minimalist Even Yehuda House, Israel
Israeli architect Sharon Neuman and London-based design studio Oded Stern Meiraz have joined forces to complete the Even Yehuda House project. Completed in 2010, this three-storey, contemporary property is located in Yehuda, close to trendy Tel Aviv, Israel.
According to the architects: ” The modern minimalist house is located in the unlikely setting of the rural town of even Yehuda, 20 minutes drive from Tel Aviv.
“The concept for the contemporary Israeli house was inspired by the work of minimalist artist Walter De Maria – Gothic Shaped Drawing that is showing a basic one line two dimensional shape of a house, almost as if drawn by a child.
“A tall brick painted wall in a traditional shape of a house, together with an attached outdoor chimney, provide the needed privacy the clients requested towards the front, and contrasting with the rear of the house which is made completely of glass and is open to the back – facing north.
“A floating open bridge/balcony on the first floor also acts as a canopy for the main entrance underneath and leads visitors through a long gap in the external wall to the main entrance of the house.
“The contemporary Israeli property comes with a basement with a shelter, cinema and a play room. On the ground floor you can find the lounge, kitchen and a TV room. The first floor has themain bedroom suite, children rooms and work areas.”
