Placed on a hilltop in one of the oldest communities in Israel, the Kfar Shmaryahu House is a boxy, aluminum-clad ode to minimalism. The ground floor consists of the kitchen and an open living area which has large glass walls that offer easy access to the patio. Above, the top floor is separated into a metallic gray square of one bedroom and the natural aluminum casing of the master and two other bedrooms, all joined by a central corridor that encourages interaction between the family members. Otherwise, the interior is stark with natural finishes, allowing the owners' art and furniture to provide necessary splashes of color.
