Architecture Design of TLV House

Description About The Project

TLV House designed by Metropole Architects, create a comfortable living environment. With breathtaking vistas of downtown Tel Aviv to the West, and the spectacle of distant aircraft ascending quietly out of Ben Gurion International airport to the South, the 200m long rectilinear site presented amazing opportunities for a modern luxury home. Indeed, the architecture of the house delineated by multiple layers of cantilevered horizontal planes. Starting with the flat roof plane of the main house, and cascading down to first floor slab, carport pergola, freestanding gazebo, and other cantilevered beams.

In addition to this, the composition of floating planes intended to create a sense of movement down the longitudinal axis of the site. It was of critical importance that the outstanding quality of the natural light. As well as the play of light and shadow, was integrated as a fundamental design consideration. Also, the architectural form of the house accentuated by the fluctuating play of light and shadow throughout the course of the day, in a symphony of built form brought together in light.

Besides, the large areas of glazing, as well as the considered design and placement of openings and screens, combined with the spacious volumes of the interior rooms include living room, dining room, bedroom, kitchen and bathroom. All contribute to the architectures ability to capture the spectacular natural light.

The important climatic considerations, together with the use of a diverse palette of materials and textures. Include natural stone, planked off shutter concrete, timber doors and windows, aluminum screens and brass cladding, harmonize. The design of the landscaping evokes a sense of tranquility and peacefulness, sensitively complimenting rather than competing with the architecture. The muted tones of the olive grove compliment the grey tones of the house and instill a sense of simplicity and quiet.

In addition to this, next to the gazebo there’s a large patio area with an outdoor dining table. It sits underneath a section of the house that’s cantilevered out to provide shade and add a dramatic touch to the design of the house.

Once insides, the living room shares the space with the dining room and kitchen. To allow the breeze from the Mediterranean Sea to filter into the house, there are plenty of wood framed sliding glass doors that can be opened.

Also, the stone that featured in the parking area and on the exterior of the TLV House guides through to the front door. And continues into the entrance hallway.
A staircase with bronze stairs and a concrete wall leads up to the second floor of the home.

The TLV House Gallery:

Text by the Architects: The project of TLV House represents the crowning achievement of a successful international collaboration between an Israeli client and project manager, an Arab Israeli contractor, a Russian Israeli engineer, and a South African architect. Designed and developed by Metropole Architects in Durban, South Africa. The logistical challenge posed by international work was effectively managed by means of intermittent site visits. Also, regular video conference calls and a remotely controlled webcam mounted on site which provided a virtual ‘man on the ground’. And enabled the architects to monitor progress on site at all times from South Africa.
