Post Script House

Gottesman Szmelcman Architecture as Architects

Cast in situ in fair-faced concrete, the PostscriptHouse reflects a preoccupation with meticulous detailing. Designed for a large and growing family, the home unifies several narratives while underlining the importance of the family nucleus. 


Utilizing the plot’s gentle slope, the home is designed to appear as a single-floor house from the west, with a second floor visible from the east. A 20-meter long pool designed in parallel to the home liberates half of the property to serve as a garden and opens up the possibility to accommodate future additions.

The home unfolds on two levels, with the main floor playing host to the living room and master bedroom, enabling a loft-like experience. Downstairs, each of the kids gets a bedroom suite that looks out onto the garden.

The architects kept the house intentionally minimal with a stark light interior that complements the blunt facade. The house is meant to reflect its owners’ style, which can be described as informal, yet clutter-free, leaving center stage to the dominant fair-faced concrete’s somberness and calm.
