The house was built on a tight budget, allowing limited use of design materials. As architects, we understood that the design concept must be implemented through the basic building elements. True enough, the unique formal play and the lively color scheme were realized by the time the structure and plaster work were complete.

The house is composed of four masses, which together create one formal unit. White shells crack open, allowing color to emerge from within, setting free the interior. Inside, as it does outside, the motif of color plays a major role, aside another key player in design – natural light.

Planning of the outdoor spaces was influenced by the site limitations as well as by the will to create diverse outdoor areas. The ground floor is supported by four different outdoor areas – a courtyard for entertainment, an entrance patio adjacent to the kitchen, a service entrance and a utility court. The professional recording studio located on the first floor enjoys a spacious roof terrace, with the benefit of an open view and good airflow in a somewhat crowded neighborhood.
