The Corten House in Tel Aviv, Israel, is a spectacular modernist home defined aesthetically and in terms of boundary by a large, perforated weathered steel structure that casts mesmerizing shadowy lines across the property as the sun travels throughout the day.

Designed by Pitsou Kedem Architects, the Corten House is a sprawling luxurious property highlighted by its stark contrasts, like the steel patterned structure and the basic but sleek concrete walls against wood. The Corten House and its layered structure is said to change color throughout the day as the sun travels, making the space feel consistently refreshing and new.

The Corten House's cacti garden also offers a charming shadow against the concrete walls at a certain point of day.
