Modern Minimalist SL House in Israel
A house with a rectangular or tube like shape is located in a suburb of Tel Aviv, Israel. It is plotted on a 475 sq.m . lot that is long and narrow. Because of that lot size, they opted to have a rectangular house. The SL house is designed with two opaque sides and transparent back and front. There is a big void in the middle which separates the two boxes into two parts. It made use of modest building materials like gray plaster, pale gray marble flooring, gypsum ceiling, aluminum storefronts and clear glass railings.
Upon entering the house, you will be able to see a wooden bridge that directs to a pool. The left area directs the guests towards the void of the house while on the other side is a fireplace that hides the living area. Bedrooms are on the second floor while it has a basement used for games. Underneath the round roof is a fitness center that has a balcony. Now let us take a look at the images of this house.
