Neuman Hayner Architects have designed the Grove House, a home for musicians in the middle of an avocado grove in Hasharon, Israel.
The architect’s description
The house was planned for musicians who wanted a deconstructive building, in the midst of an avocado grove. We tried to minimize the number of trees we had to clear. The plan required the space of six trees, but unfortunately we discovered that a 7th tree was to sick to survive, so we enlarged the porch.
Large openings were designed towards the north and south, ideal in Israeli weather. We used a large, inclined concrete roof to shade the openings, as well as the large trees.
