Architectural elegance from the heart of Israel comes in the shape of the Float House, by Pitsou Kedem Architects. This large, single-storey family home is designed as one continuous open space, subtly subdivided into separate rooms without the need for major obstructing walls. Glass, smooth basalt and repeating wooden slats make up a large part of the building’s construction, combining to striking effect in the central courtyard pool. Elsewhere, light enters the rooms through floor-to-ceiling windows on the majority of walls, while the garden combines lawn space, water features, and a canopied alfresco dining area. In short, a truly beautiful place to raise a family.
