Well-Designed Concrete Cut House in Israel
A beautiful modern concrete home in Israel.
We have seen many concrete homes of course because it is the material widely used to create sturdy houses and it could also be used in making homes of various designs. Most homes would paint the exterior or add other finishes but there are also some homes that prefer to retain the concrete texture both in the interior and exterior of the house. Well, we have seen this in industrial spaces but it does look great in modern homes too.
What we will feature today is a 500 sq.m. house called Concrete Cut from Tel Aviv-based studio Pitsou Kedem. This modern home is located in Ramat Gan, Israel and has a sleek design. The house is actually a combination of concrete and glass which made it look very pleasing and attractive. The modern home doesn’t just look good from the exterior but also in the interior as well. It is well-planned in terms of layout and design. Let us take a look at the house below.

Instead of being painted with whatever colors, the house retained the concrete texture.

A glass enclosed cut-out could offer a view of the internal staircase. Notice that the stairs is black in color that adds contrast to the home.
During the night, the home is brightly lit with dramatic lightings. There are trees and bushes that surround it from the street.
A half-size concrete wall defines the property line of the home and it also compliments with the design of the house as well.
Seen here are hidden lightings under the treads in the outdoor area that make it easier to walk at night.
