The diagonals serve as a roof system that ungulates like an artificial topography creating skylights in some cases while in others situations rising up double the height of other rooftop peaks. At the base floor the program develops a direct relationship between the interior and exterior through the abundant use of glass-work trellises and sliding panels“. The green or white landscape floods in through large and long windows and the ceilings fold angular on the inside as well creating an extravagant accent throughout the house.
This stylish home located in Ramat Hasharon — a city on Israel’s central coastal strip in the south of the Sharon region — is all about living it up in an ultra0cool fashion. Designed by Levy-Chamizer Architects the home does its best to ensure that the lines between the exterior and the interior are blurred by using floor-to-ceiling glass windows.
Small tiki figures or patterns are iconic of the South Pacific and will undoubtedly add a special touch to your home design as will furniture or floor mats made of rattan. Add a few potted palms and a strong beverage served in a hollow coconut and you may begin to feel on a permanent vacation.
Designing custom-made furniture is not an easy art. In fact it takes both immaculate vision and unabated creativity to custom design for customers the interiors and décor that they wish for. The most challenging aspect of it is obviously understand what customers have in mind and to decode it and bring a room to reality in a way that pleases them best. And few have achieved this better than Melissa Collison over the past few years.
But is not just the spacious backyard that makes life here a constant vacation. The sleek and refreshing pool promises a cool dip every time things become a bit too hot to handle while a plethora of activities await you thanks to the mini-golf green paddle-tennis court and the bocce ball court. Yup this is pretty much like opening your backyard door and walking into a vacation at a cool resort.
But that seems to fit perfectly with the plan as the three floors of the home offer three unique living spaces with each having a very specific goal. The ground level is for the children and it opens up into a beautiful patio area and houses plenty of room for kids to play around. A wonderful walkway in stone combined with stairs graces the area above the pool and adds to the uniqueness of the house.
While she happily admits that most of her work is intuition her designs seem both warm and exuberant and away from the modern trend of minimalism. Of course if needed Melissa Collison can work with that style as well … as some of the pictures showcase.
