Appearing to effortlessly float above the ground, the Afeka House, also known as G House, advances Pitsou Kedem Architect’s residential design beyond a purely minimalist approach.
The G House is horizontally expressed but uses vertical space and light in surprising ways. The simply shaped residence on a small half of a dunam lot is organized along a horizontal framework which contains two living levels and a basement. The main level features copious glazing which opens to a private yard and pool; it is the entire wall of glass that creates the illusion of a floating building. The roof itself hovers above the house, separated by a slim glass window line.
