| Location: Caesarea, Israel | Category: New built – Private home | Size: 650SQM | Status: Completed 2001
Facing the historic Roman Aqueduct of Caesarea and the coast beyond, this long, odd shaped site was particularly suited to accommodate a liner home. The linearity of the building echoes the Aqueduct and offers unrestricted views to all the rooms. This Villa primarily serves as a holiday residence. Its purpose is to instill tranquility and offer an escape from the charged and hectic environment that defines Tel Aviv. The Holiday Residence is comprised of one long concrete wall to the East and three glass walls. The villa clearly faces the sea and the Aqueduct and turns its back towards the rather shabby villas that surround it. It is cast in white fair-faced concrete and utilizing OSB shuttering. Its texture and color resembles that of the sand dunes. From the expansive roof terrace, the azure coastline is revealed and serves as the perfect location to enjoy the daily sunset.
