Planning and design of 350sqm house located in Tel Aviv. The house is a one family urban house which reinvents the idea of the white cube with the ribbon window, a significant feature of the 30’s and 40’s residential buildings in Tel Aviv. The back-view of the upcoming tall buildings seeks to remind the heritage of the white city. The Interior of the house contracts with the white cube. It involves interplay of raw materials in juxtaposition to the purity of the cube. In the center of the house is a cantilevered staircase of metal and wood that transforms itself on each floor, on the basement it becomes a desk and working area, on the ground floor it is a division between the living room and the kitchen. Above the staircase there’s a skylight that brings in light and is a reminder of the white cube and therefore of the white city.
