Perforated shutters create geometric facade for Pitsou Kedem's house in Tel Aviv
Bands of shutters featuring a geometric perforated pattern appear to form seamless surfaces that extend across the facade of this house in Tel Aviv by Israeli architect Pitsou Kedem.
The house is located in an area to the north of the city where a few streets lined with one- or two-storey homes were built during the city's expansion in the 1950s.
Pitsou Kedem designed the property to complement the aesthetic style of the neighbouring buildings and to make the most of the small site, which was previously occupied by another property that was demolished.
The building's additional storey sets it apart from its lower neighbours, while its clean lines and bright white-painted walls lend it a contemporary appearance. From the side, a gabled profile references the shape of the original structure and the history of the neighbourhood.
We tried to achieve an urban, minimalist and pure design which produces bright spaces that allow for a relatively small plot of space," Kedem told happyarchitect...!
