Grand Modernist House in Israel Opens Up to Its Own Courtyard

Joel Jospe Architects have designed a private residence that looks like it was meant to be built seventy years ago. Stone cladding and elaborate roof give it a grand modernist feel.

Huge wooden gates instantly change the direction of the design, although it’s hard not to see it as a potential public office building.

As you step through the wide pivoting door, you can see an inner courtyard behind a glass frame. Swimming pool bends, and turns shallow to create a decorative water feature crowned with an accent boulder.

Interior looks quite eclectic with its farmhouse-style beamed wooden ceilings and endless glass walls. Both the public and private quarters open up to the fenced inner courtyard filled with outdoor lounge areas and greenery.

Blinds, shutters, and curtains are ready at any minute to increase privacy in every room, but it’s not as critical, since all indiscretion is directed toward a private yard.
