267 | Ramat-Hen row house

The existing house is located within a one-story terraced residential block from the 1950’s, at the top of  a slope, overlooking a garden that descends downhill in 3 terraces. The house was completely demolished from within, and the roof was temporarily supported throughout the construction. The street façade remained intact, while the back façade was torn open floor to ceiling, thus enabling the living area and master bedroom to overlook the garden through glass sliding-doors. A 75cm thick wall separates the public area from the bedrooms, and contains climate control ducts, storage and services. Privacy is maintained by means of steep topography and lush vegetation, despite large glass facades and dense environment
