Location: Klil, Israel
Program: Family House

This family house is situated in Klil, an off-grid alternative village, with plenty of open, green spaces around the houses. The main concept was to introduce a seamless, free flowing way of moving within the house and the open spaces surrounding it.
The central, public space, which contains the living room and kitchen, is encompassed by a corridor, partially inside and partially outside of the house. This circulation route zigzagging in and out gives the notion of free and almost endless movement, and connects the natural and the built in an effortless way.
The walls and roof were prefabricated in wood in a nearby workshop, and assembled rapidly on site.
