Ramat Hasharon House: A Home Enveloped in White
Another beautiful modern home will rest before our eyes today. The Ramat Hasharon House which is located in Ramat Hasharon, Israel is built between two central courtyards wherein the front courtyard is excavated in 3 meters deep while the second courtyard is at level with the home’s ground floor. With this, the house creates a unique cross section. The central area of the house has a kitchen, dining groom and living room which opens to the east and the west. The two different openings let natural light envelope the interior while allowing a good view of the greenery from the courtyard.
The central space of the house can be accessed through a long bridge that crosses the sunken courtyard leading to a front door. The bridge would allow a view of the children’s living room that also leads to the basement. The house is transparent with electronic sliding glass windows that seem to unite the interior and the exterior. Outdoors, you will see a swimming pool that looks like an extension of the structure. Now let us take a look at the Ramat Hasharon House below:
The solid structure of the house lines it with beauty but despite that, the central area’s openness welcomes the beauty of nature indoors.
This swimming pool seems to extend from the house and it sure looks long too! Guess this would be perfect for a pool party!
A dining area is set outdoors. Eating with the trees around and the soft breeze on your skin will surely increase your appetite and make chatting even more fun.
At night, when the lights are on, the house is a gem with white lights that envelope it.
You can see here how the house really looked transparent with its glass walls.

This private residence designed by Pitsou Kedem Architects has two supporting side walls which was emphasized in its architecture- one was poured from exposed architectural concrete and the other a large library that reaches to its full height.
