This prestigious villa located in Ramat Gan, Israel, was created in 2017 by Dror Barda.

Description by Dror Barda

This prestigious villa is composed of two buildings: A house with a constructed-up area of about 700 m searching out onto the pool, and a guest home with a built-up region of about 200 m that sits straight on the edge of the pool.

Inside the framework of this special project, we challenged the forces of gravity by signifies of a floating cube/ark with a size of about 70 m which serves as the master bedroom and is connected by a bridge to one more portion of the residential floor. The ceiling of the ark is disconnected from the rounded roof above it, and an upper window lets the daylight in (with proper lighting also throughout evening hours), finishing the ark’s detachment on all sides.

The use of components such as exposed concrete, wood and white plaster with clean lines creates a rich language of encounters and detachments among masses.

In spite of its large location, the space inside the house is neither alienated nor threatening. The whole house is planned without having corridors, and every space is utilized in an powerful and high-high quality way.

The mixture of clean and modern design language (created by exposed concrete, the detachments and the clean lines in the white places) and the warm furniture account for a really pleasant and inviting atmosphere.

The guest property has been planned about an open patio and created as a loft with industrial components, collectively with warm and homey furniture, and the connection amongst both creates an atmosphere that is each young and inviting. The entrance floor of the loft involves the public spaces, and it all overlooks the pool.
