AB House designed by Pitsou Kedem Architects, covers 770 square metres of a 1,800-square-metre plot in the Kfar Shmaryahu neighbourhood to the North of the Israeli city. The house comprises two interconnected volumes; a long exposed concrete box that extends into a reflecting pool, and a taller perpendicular rendered structure. Indeed, this house’s simple forms and finishes are typical of Kedem’s numerous projects in the Tel Aviv region. It includes a property featuring bands of shutters with a similar geometric pattern and a home surrounded by screens that reference traditional latticework.
The designer applied painted metal screens – that it describes as evocative of netting – to various external and internal surfaces. In addition to this, the screens with a perforated geometric pattern help to control ethereally the flow of light, air and views throughout this house. Inside the home, the pivoting sections integrated into a surface separating the living room, master bedroom from a poolside terrace. Also, the perforated pattern is repeated in elements including a black-painted balustrade that separates the kitchen and dining room from a staircase with cantilevered treads.
