Appreciation towards Gottesman Architecture for providing the following description:

Gottesman建筑事务所与GSArch在以色列Kfar Shmaryahu共同打造了一栋现代而简约的私人住宅。这是建筑师Asaf Gottesman在近十年间的第一个私人住宅项目。该项目为建筑师带来了重新磨炼技能以及与客户和友人进行讨论的机会。最终的建筑呈现出一种简单、放松且不张扬的特质。

Gottesman Architecture in collaboration with GSArch, unveil POSTSCRIPT, a modern, minimal, private home located in Kfar Shmaryahu, Israel. It is the first private home undertaken by Architect Asaf Gottesman in over a decade. Approached by a former client, this project offered an opportunity to re-sharpen old skills and to rekindle a discourse with both clients and friends. The result is a deceivingly simple design that appears both effortless and unassuming.

Cast in situ in fair-faced concrete, POSTSCRIPT reflects a preoccupation with meticulous detailing. Designed for a large and growing family, the home unifies several narratives while underlining the importance of the family nucleus. The POSTSCRIPT residence is a revisiting of a topic which was the main domain of expertise of Asaf Gottesman throughout the 1990’s.

▼建筑从东面看是一栋双层住宅,a house with a second floor visible from the East

▼下沉的庭院,the sunken yard


Utilizing the plot’s minimal slope, the home is designed to appear as a single-floor house from the West, with a second floor visible from the East. A 20-meter long pool designed in parallel to the home liberates half of the property to serve as a garden and opens up the possibility to accommodate future additions.

As part of the initial concept , the clients requested to have their bedroom on the ground level adjacent to the living area, with the children’s rooms and family areas on the floor below. The family is blessed with four boys with the oldest being approximately 20 years older than the youngest who are twins. Family life is informal yet the aesthetic is minimal and rigorous. There is very little clutter and every item in the home is chosen carefully.
