'Kfar Shmaryahu House' is a contemporary residential building that is wrapped in a natural aluminum casing. While aluminum may seem like an odd building material for a home, this retreat boasts a modern look that represents a striking ode to minimalism.

The Kfar Shmaryahu House is located on the top of a small hill in one of Israel's oldest communities. The home features two levels, both of which boast the same boxy shape. The first floor contains the kitchen and living room and it is characterized by the large glass walls running along the back. The second floor contains the bedrooms, which are wrapped in a natural aluminum casing. The unusual exterior ultimately serves as a stark industrial contrast to the minimal design inside.
