So a lot of architectural masterpieces have been coming out of Tel Aviv, Israel lately and the CH House by Domb Architects absolutely falls into that category. This single-family contemporary dream house is in fact a comprehensive renovation with easy finishes of white plaster, stone, iron and glass dominating the residence. It was specially constructed for a couple and their extended loved ones.
From the street view, the structure comes across as a perfect white box. Though from the rear, the roofline slopes at an angle, exuding a linear beauty, while supplying something unexpected.
The home’s entrance is breathtaking, with wide timber planks meshing with a trickling water function. Light is refracted in a special matter here, whilst a double door of white and steel awaits.
Even though the architect stresses how the low-ceilings of the original dwelling had to be dealt with, you would definitely not really feel that they have been limitations whatsoever. In reality, the very first floor living areas are flowing, interconnected and rimmed in plentiful glazing which enables the outdoors to transfer inside on a whim. Smooth pale stone floors transition these contemporary spaces meticulously and bounce light gracefully across the interiors. An intimate library corner is adorned with books displayed inside the custom constructed-in unit.
A neutral colour palette rooted in clean white is what keeps these spaces eventually fresh, as effectively as tranquil. Grey and cream are rich, specifically when fused with the numerous wood-accented modern furnishings. Numerous modern artworks hang on walls, delivering the slightest strokes of bold colour.
The kitchen is a streamlined gem, a flush white-on-white system contrasted with a block of dark-wood upper cabinetry featuring each closed cupboards and open shelving–love that mix! An adjoining pantry nook leads to the patio terrace.
The staircase sits in the core of the primary living space and characteristics pure glass railings permitting views to penetrate from any perspective. Upstairs, the private quarters adhere to the restrained palette, with more sliding glass doors opening to the second-level terraces, where the loved ones and guests can enjoy tree-topped views. The master bath is exhilarating, with a wall of green stone mimicking nature, appearing as plant leaves. This organic dose of colour is in best harmony with the spa-like space which features a sleek vanity and freestanding soaking tub.
The outdoor wood-deck terrace is adjacent to the gardens and lawn, a vast region replete with plush sofas for relaxation, as well as an alfresco kitchen, a certain request of the client.
The CH Home is a contemporary dream house, an escape of sorts with in depth indoor and outside gathering spaces where a family can continue to grow and get pleasure from the simple pleasures in life.
