SH House - Modern Town House with a Mix of Design Motives

SH House is a single-family residence designed by Pazgersh Architecture and Design in Herzliya, Israel.

Project description: In planning the villa, the main design concept was designing a modern town house with a mix of textures and design motives. The house’s southern elevation is in front of a public garden. Thus the open views from the site are long and exceed the neighboring borders. The program was planned for a family with three children with a large master suite.

On the ground floor, an open plan provides public spaces such as: a kitchen, a dining area, a library, and an open living room around the garden area. By planning the bedrooms in the upper levels of the house, the ground floor becomes a transitional space between the entertaining and the private spaces.

The house was planned while searching for an architectural language, both using local references with the combination contemporary Mediterranean elements. The main design concept was an interaction between different design textures. These textures, such as exposed concrete and wood, reflective wood veneer and soft fabrics create a warm living space to entertain and live.
