Bar Orian Architects' Tel Aviv Home References Brutalism

Bar Orian Architects' newly built house in Tel Aviv references a modishly popular form of design while hinting at a subtle, darker undertone. Ostensibly, the home, which is composed of two raw concrete volumes stacked one on top of another, is akin to Brutalist structures. However, its windows are covered by vertical strips of Corten steel louvres, a visual reference to military bunkers (another structure with which Israelis are unfortunately all too familiar.)

Despite its militarism, Bar Orian Architects' residence is nonetheless a homey one. It was designed for a family of five, and its spacious interior offers plenty of natural light and warmth, with wood and carpeting to soften the concrete walls. There is also a charming patio with a garden in the back of the home.
