Kfar Shmaryahu House Design by Pitsou Kedem Architects


Pitsou Kedem Architects have intended the Kfar Shmaryahu House in Israel. The arrangement of stuff during the given space or perhaps defined data format so as to present meaning towards placement and arrangement on the items, the results on the relationship among the object along with the framework with the artistic creation.


A private, family residence within an urban environment. From without, the building would not uncover who’s’s just a property. It resembles a mold or an artist’s canvas or an practically two dimensional frame within whose area several openings are already placed and which is usually enveloped that has a dynamic process of wooden, linear strips.


The planar distribution with the “picture” or, in cases like this the front facade, creates a non-symmetrical composition which pulls towards the flanking encounters within an hope to advise that this is, in fact, a three dimensional mass. The arrangement with the items (the openings) is always fixed and allows for just one central and everlasting composition.


The potential to reverse the balanced composition right into a dynamic one is produced possible thank you on the design of an technique of smart blinds that allows the blinds for being lifted upwards even though these are folded into what resembles a roof. All the rails and fixtures are hidden thus, when the facade is closed the dynamic and reforming possibilities hidden inside residence’s facade usually are not apparent.


All the openings receptive separately and so allow for diverse compositions. At any given moment and for whatever reason (privacy, protection from your sun) the relationship between the object along with the airplane can be changed. Thus we are able easily to achieve a composition that’s balanced, dynamic, haphazard, closed or open in a similar framework.


Movement over home is accompanied (thanks towards the workable blind system) by different views in the outside, some open and bare, others undisguised and others framing a part of landscape especially designed for it. This selfsame changeability and versatility also allows domination over how much sunlight and organic mild entering over the openings and on the homes spaces.

These spaces are characterized by the restrained use of materials and form to ensure that this light penetrating the space creates a feeling of drama, movement and dynamism which generally breathe life on the souls with the silent walls.


Thus, in effect, the system of relationships between the street and also the structure composed of changing, but two dimensional compositions over a framed and flat plane develops, for that person from the house’s spaces, an open area that incorporates abstract or tangible pictures with volume.


The relationship between these identical volumes (the walls, the stairs, the various partitions along with the different elements during the house) along with the space, create, over the structures changing facade as well as the dynamism in the blinds, changing compositions, sometimes controlled and sometimes random having a whole new and different experience being created each time to make an individual and those dwelling in the home.
