Home is always being the most interesting topic to talk about, of course because everyone very addict for create their own beautiful house. Today I bring the nice topic about a home design; it’s a contemporary home design indeed. Maybe someday you will have the same home like this home which called the Beam House. Well guys, see below if you want to know more!
This home which called the Beam House was completed designed by the Uri Cohen Architects. This living space is located in Arbel, Israel. There is comprises area for about 180 square meters. It was a 2010 year project home. And by the architect, this living space was conceived as a contemporary home design.
This home was ordered by the architect’s client, they want a home which is located next to their farm. The size of the site is 1.25 acres and it is located in the rustic rural landscape of northern Israel. The architect’s design combines some of the utilitarian images of the agriculture buildings in that area, with the fascination with the ‘beam’ construction typical of a ‘country home’. The inspiration is translated to the defining lines and materials of the house as well as to the openings and views that extend from it.
By look at the picture, you will see that this living space is divided into three parallel strips; private, semi private and public. By doing so, there is a possibility to have one main living section full of the northern light, while extending the backyard and the surrounding views into the public space. The private southern section is closed by concrete walls enhancing the feeling of privacy.
A thick wall which is contains the utilities such as the air conditioner system; storage spaces, toilets, etc are standed between the public and semi public spaces. Linear skylights divide the programmatic sections of the home, while highlighting the crossing structural beams of the house. The beams of the roof rest on that ‘central concrete wall’ and serve as cantilevers to the linear roof of the living area. This keeps the northern glass façade free of columns. The circular external lines affect the interior design creating a resting bench in the living room and unique lines in the windows and walls of the private spaces.
The concrete lines extend beyond the house allowing an external breakfast area overlooking the family’s farm views. The area between the private and public area of the house provides for a shaded ‘outside public space’ which is also the entrance axis for the house.
Well guys, that’s all I have got. This is an amazing contemporary home design. Ok, I hope this little information is useful for you guys. Have a nice day!
