Rooms are shared between two matching concrete blocks at this house in Israel by architects Shilo Benaroya. A corridor and stairwell joins the two halves of the Ben Ami House together and a small patio slots into the space between. The architects explain how this division satisfies the “simple need for privacy” in the two-storey family house and have separated bedrooms between the two blocks. The kitchen is located at the back of the house and opens out onto a second terrace. The facade of the house displays two tones of grey, where some parts of the concrete have been coated in plaster and others are left exposed. Other Israeli houses we’ve featured include one that is entirely white and one that is concealed behind a house-shaped brick wall.
