Located at the strip of coastal plain close to the Mediterranean Sea, this home in Israel by Henkin Shavit Design Studio is a sleek, modernist take of the traditional 19th-century farmhouse. The single-storey, 375 sq m home sits on a 0.5-acre plot of land (approximately 2,023 sq m).
Architects Irit Henkin and Zohar Shavit, who founded their eponymous studio in 2005, took inspiration from the surrounding farms for the design of the house.
The traditional coastal Mediterranean farm comprises a constellation of residential buildings inhabited by landlords and their employees. Scattered throughout the farmland, these buildings feature diverse styles and materials depending on the importance.
