Studio Tapooly, led by Polina Broitman, designed this private residence in Ramot HaShavim, Israel for an artist and her family. Spread out over 250 square meters (2,691 square feet), the home’s main space is an open plan with cathedral ceilings. Despite the open nature, it still feels warm and cozy.
Large windows and doors lead to the outdoor space framing views of nature for the homeowners, while keeping the interior light and well-ventilated.
The house is broken up into two equal sized sections – one for the public areas and the other for the private, family areas – both connected by the entrance area.
Within the large, open living area, they created a smaller, room-within-a-room for TV watching. Partition walls and open cut-outs keep the spaces united.
The cut-outs keep sight lines open through the span of the house.
The artist’s own work fills the white walls and adds a personal element to the design.
