Private Residence

Tirat Yehuda

The project was an addition to a private house at Moshav Tirat Yehuda. The concept required a new design at the ground level, and the additional rooms at the upper floor. The clients dreamed of daylight around the staircase, even though there wasn't any external wall nearby. The solution was vertical surrounding windows above the ceiling, enabling light’s penetration. This created a nice patern of sunrays projecting on the walls and between the stairs. The light picture changes, indicating the sun location at different day times.

"Light is not so much something that reveals, as it is itself the revelation".
