Ain Hod House Provides a Calm and Pastoral Atmosphere

Ain Hod House provides a calm and pastoral atmosphere (5)

Ain Hod House is a recently completed project by Tel Aviv-based EN Design Studio (Ori Dunetz and Eran Naim). This is residential project in the Ein Hod Artist Village in the North of Israel. Built in the 1970’s, the house was designed as two separate cubes placed side by side. We sought to create a space that gives an effect that both cubes work as one.

By connecting and expanding the public area, we designed one unified shared space. Opening a “window” between the kitchen and work room enabled an expanded view while also serving a dual function. Firstly, to extend vision of the internal living space and secondly, to offer a vista from inside to the outer green landscape.

With this in mind, we put emphasis on warm materials and elements such as a fireplace, natural oak wood in all rooms, and chose the grays of the color palate for a country yet modern feel. In addition, we placed architectural lighting to display the artwork of the owner when work is completed. [Via email – Courtesy of EN Design Studio]

Home is not merely a house or container of trivial things in daily life, but more a place that accommodates emotions and love. It's like an intimate medium, which witnesses the interweaving of daily life and growth, records stories occur in the space, and conveys the occupant's personality and attitude.
