Elegant N2 House in Israel Around Seven Spatial Stages by Pitsou Kedem

Elegant N2 House in Israel Around Seven Spatial Stages by Pitsou Kedem




Elegant N2 House designed by Pitsou Kedem with a unique feature they call “seven states of passage” that becomes apparent as one moves through the home. This stylish, single-family house located in Herzeliya, North of Tel Aviv on the Mediterranean coast. It uses Swisspearl Fiber Cement as an elegant, strong facade protection.

The most characteristic feature of this elegant N2 house is defined by these different spaces that the inhabitants encounter as they make their way from the main gate to the backyard. Seven states of passage set between the main gate and the back yard of this house. The first passage is under a grate lattice that floats above the entrance. To its left is a massive concrete wall that hangs above a dark reflection pool and hides the house interior. Besides, the second stage is beyond this wall, at a more private entrance hall that reveals the house and yet separated from it with a glass wall. Also, the third stage is at the main front door where there are two hallways – the main one crosses through the house whereas the second leads to the guest bathroom.

The fourth stage is when moving along the main hall, which at its left is an internal patio rising three stories high, and housing both the staircase and a sitting area. In addition to this, walking along the hall reveals the fifth stage, when the more private kitchen and family room are seen through slits in the hallway wall. The last stages are at the end of the hallway, where the living room is and, eventually, the open yard above which, echoing the entrance, floats a grate lattice. Surely, N2 house offers a high quality of family life in a series of bright, sunlit interconnected spaces.
