M3 House designed by Pitsou Kedem Architects is fully glazed walls house that seem to “grow from within the garden”. The architect is known for the massive use of floor-to-ceiling glazing in their projects. It is a solution which allows the owner to make the most of the abundant sunlight afforded by the location of the Israeli state on the Mediterranean. The house located in the Savyon district of Israel, uses fully glass walls and an extended pergola style roof to link this home. The local studio designed the single storey house to maximise its connection with the garden, forgoing a traditional facade and installing glass panels held in place by thin black iron frames on all four sides.

Inside M3 house is a very large open space area with kitchen area, dining table, bar and spots to relax. All “meeting spaces” for the family that overlook the main courtyard, patio. While other private areas of the house, such as some bedrooms and bathrooms overlook the pool or look towards the back yard. As a result, together these architectural elements create the impression that the house “grows from within the garden”.

“The building’s spaces are open to the outside and one to the other,” explained the architects. “They successfully create the feeling of an interconnected group of intimate, warm and family spaces whist. At the same time, creating an effect of continuity and space.”
More private areas of the house such as some bedrooms and a family room face the pool. While the master bedroom and bathroom look directed towards the rear courtyard.

Light curtains can be drawn around all the windows to give privacy, although the lush garden growing on every side already provides a natural screen.
