House RNG is a country home built on a hill with a spectacular view. The house is designed around an internal courtyard with a limited number of carefully located openings that face the surrounding landscape. In contrast to this, there are large generous openings that create a strong connection to the central courtyard. Save this picture!© Amit GeronThe client, a carpenter, requested a traditional Timber Frame House. The timber structural frame was shipped to Israel from Seattle. This logistic problem demanded that the house be designed and built on a strict modular system established by standard timber modules. This systematic approach was used to create a series of open flowing spaces.

Only the walls embracing the children’s beds are higher than this. The off-shutter base acts as a retaining wall creating the main floor living platform.

The second floor contains the parents bedroom and study and a small terrace overlooking the central courtyard, which is defined by the house to the south and west and by the rising topography to the north. The eastern edge of the courtyard is defined by an external bathroom which doubles as a viewing platform. Here, the view is revealed in its entire splendor.

These include the use of recycled water and natural ventilation via light “chimneys”.Save this picture!ElevationsProject gallerySee allShow lessRensselaer Polytechnic Institute Fall 2011 Lecture SeriesArticles2011 ECCS Structural Steel Design Award / JDS ArchitectsArticles Share “COPY” “COPY” Area:  230 m² Year Completion year of this architecture project CopyHouses•Israel Architects: The Heder Partnership Area Area of this architecture project Israel Save this picture!© Amit Geron+ 19 Share House RNG / The Heder Partnership ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOr Clipboard House RNG / The Heder PartnershipSave this projectSaveHouse RNG / The Heder Partnership Year:  ArchDailylast_img read more
