Fauna is the integral part of the remarkable House in Savion design created by architect Alex Meitlis. In a subtle way boarders between outdoors and indoors are blurred creating this radiant home.
About the Project:
The project seeks alternative ways to naturally illuminate the house, to enable sun penetrating in the winter months and to create shade for comfortable use of the spaces in the harsh summer weather in Israel.
The ground floor accommodates a living room, an open plan kitchen and dining room. The dramatic openness of this area creates the central spine of the house where it also exhibited the client’s art collection. The use of wood elements in the interior gives a clean, warm character to the house.
All rooms open out to adjacent terraces and garden spaces. The Architect manages to integrate the elements of the outdoor into the interior space and to create a tight dialog between interior and exterior by opening windows as frames of the natural surrounding.
