A Modern Villa by Israelevitz Architects

A Modern Villa is a project designed by Israelevitz Architects. Welcome to the new home of a couple with 6 children, located in a quiet and pleasant neighborhood in one of the coveted and vibrant central cities. Over the years, the family lived on a nearby street, in a rented house that did not quite match their taste and needs. They purchased a corner plot of about half a dunam and approached Dan and Hila Israelevitz – the owners of the Israelevitz Architects office, to design a home tailored to their needs. The result, like all the projects the firm is entrusted with, is inspiring thanks to poetic, ultra-modern and unconventional architecture, a close connection between indoor and outdoor spaces, and meticulous and highly professional interior design tailored precisely to their lifestyle. This is what it looks like from the outside and inside. Photography by Oded Smadar.

Renovation and extension project by Brengues Le Pavec architectes

The project designed by Brengues Le Pavec architectes is the renovation and expansion of a house from the 1960s in a residential area of Montpellier. Its rational and flat roof typology presents interesting potential with a view to adding additional volume. The extension aims to offer a living space more closely linked to the garden. The project is the composition of simple vertical and horizontal planes freeing up a significant length of glazing. This extension is designed using raw materials such as stamped concrete and stone on the ground. Inside, wooden panels on well-defined walls will provide a warm atmosphere.

Compluvium House by Fran Silvestre Arquitectos

Compluvium House is a project designed by Fran Silvestre Arquitectos. The ancient Greeks, Etruscans and Romans implemented in their aristocratic residences a new architectural system known as compluvium, designed to divert rainwater into the impluvium. This structure, located in the heart of the domus, not only had an initial practical function of expelling smoke from internal fires, but also evolved to improve fundamental aspects such as natural lighting, room ventilation and the efficient accumulation of rainwater.
