Key Contemporary Residential Developments in Israel, Middle East

Houses in Israel

We’ve selected what we feel are the key examples of Israeli Houses. We aim to include buildings that are either of top quality or interesting, or ideally both.

We cover completed residential buildings, new building designs and architecture competitions across Israel. The focus is on contemporary Israeli residences but information on traditional Israel homes is also welcome.

5 Meters Residence in Tel Mond
On a relatively small plot, Ron Shenkin designed a challenging private house only 5 meters in width. The construction rights created the limitations of a very small land cover, restrictive and even curved construction lines and a rectangular house where every centimeter counts. “Winning land in this country is equivalent to winning the lottery,” Shenkin says.

In the 1950s what was known as the “International Style” was highly developed in Tel Aviv. It developed thanks to architects who studied at the Bauhaus Institute in Germany and who then returned to Israel to continue their work. One of the architects who led the “International Style” was Dov Carmi. He designed many, usually large, projects. One of his more restrained projects was an urban villa in the center of Tel Aviv which he designed in 1951.

The scheme proposes to combine the ancient building complex with the new one by a central space. This allows observation from the ancient part to the new and vice versa, while it gives a new vertical dimension to the typology of the patio hinted at the ancient remains. The ‘floating’ structure of the building covers the ‘Antiquities Courtyard’, protecting it from rain, wind and sun while creating conditions of natural and artificial lighting. In this way, the ‘Antiquities Courtyard’ becomes a useful and meaningful outdoor space.

Zipper House, Lachish – 20 Jun 2013

The challenge in this scheme was to add a second house to the site in such a way that both will create an assembly of space and activity between the two families and still allow division and privacy.

Hotel Villa Yessod Hammala – added 31 May 2013
This is a preservation and an extension of a historic heritage monument on the first street in Yessod Hammala, which was built by the ‘pioneers’ in the late 19th century. It’s located in a tourist area and this makes it possible (or at least part of it) to be used in the future as a boutique hotel or for another commercial use. This was the prime reason of creating one long corridor crossing the entire site which connects all kind of (outside) spaces that can be joined or rejoined in different phases for the future. The complex can by used as one, two or even three living units, one house with commercial space or guest rooms or even the whole complex as one hotel.

Gassul House – near Haifa
The geometry and openings in this building were created while mainly aiming the beautiful landscape of the Carmel Mountain and the will to preserves the existing trees. The north elevation that faces the landscape is largely opened to the view. The privacy of the inhabitant vis-à-vis the street is preserved due to the cantilevered porch that is 2 m higher than the street. The Kitchen is located close to the entrance and serves easily the dinning lot and the living space.
