The 750 metre squared house comprises two buildings connected by the ground floor and roof. The main building is inhabited by the couple, and the second building is to host guests for weekends and holidays. Both are included public areas on the ground floor, bedrooms on the upper floor and an entertainment area on the basement floor.
The clients− a real estate entrepreneur and his wife, decided to build their house on the Ashdod shoreline. The couple love entertaining and hosting guests and therefore the architects emphasized this important requirement throughout the design process.
The house combines classic and restricted design with a dynamic, modern and innovative atmosphere by means of an optimal link between the architects' ideals and the clients' requirements.
The main raw material of the house is light and all the visual elements of the house are directed towards the sunrise and sunset. The fascinating play between the light and shadows create a building with a different ambiance during the day and at night. Aluminium cladding is one of the most prominent building materials and is known as being optimal for buildings near the sea.
The eastern facade is closed as opposed to the western facade facing the sea which is made of a transparent glass wall with an interior shading system enabling a breathtaking view of the sea and sand dunes as well as control over the glare and heat entering the house. The roof extends over this glass wall for a 20 metre length at a height of 8 metres.
This is an actual beach house, where the dunes and the sea are present in a very dominant way, from every floor and every corner. The architects tried to refine the definition and experience of the sea, clouds, skies and sand. The result is a family house with the sensation of vacation.
