As architects we design spaces for people – spaces that promote a sense of place, calling their visitors to linger. We created Object to complete this experience. Our objects express the delicate balance between the human scale and architecture, presenting their users with an holistic experience. We seek to design unique objects that are user friendly and accessible.
Objects that transcend trends and remain true to our everyday lives We seek to enrich our daily rituals with everyday objects that offer an original and surprising experience The design of our objects is a playful dance between masses and plains, a constant motion between volume and void

From the architect. A 270 square meter plot was used as the foundation for a Tel Aviv town house consisting of a basement and an additional 6 floors. The owners wanted to create the experience of life in a private residence but within the city.
The architect, Pitsou Kedem, designed an urban style courtyard on the roof and, as a result, reversed the usually, permanent, order of things. The authentic, urban skyline reveals to those in the courtyard, Tel Aviv's rooftops and thus realizes the urban experience that the owners wanted to achieve.
The architectural design was based on a cross section of the structure whilst creating a physical and visual relationship between all the floors. Each floor encompasses an area of some 100 square meters with every floor being used for a different purpose. This enables the house's residents to create common meeting spaces alongside separated spaces that, together, maximize the usage off the space and maximize the privacy that day to day life in a home requires.

A private residence built in the center of a historic avenue and at the very heart of Haifa’s French Carmel neighborhood. The project emphasizes and sharpens the differences between apparently similar design styles of contemporary minimalism influenced by Japan and the austere moderation of the modernism that characterized the end of the 1950’s. Both of these paradigms translate into a way of life, to the Israeli environment and climate. The sophistication and the minimalism that existed at the heyday of the Bauhaus period have been translated, in this latest reincarnation, into a spacial purity and prestigious restraint. In his design, the architect has expressed his own, localized interpretation for free planning in which there is a spacial continuity achieved through light, appearance and movement and the placement of secondary spaces around one, large and open central space.

From the architect. A one story, private residence in the center of the country. The architectural concept was to create a structure with a continuous, wide space, divided by internal courtyards and movable partitions into smaller spaces used for a variety of different functions. The different spaces and internal courtyards are joined together are joined together into one structure by two, ultra-thin roofs supported at one central point so that seem to float in the air. The two roofs merge, one into the other and extend for five meters over the building front walls.

From the architect. Since the dawn of history, ‘public’ architecture – the architecture constructed by institutions of church and state, served as a tool in shaping the consciousness of the masses. Its massive dimensions, layout of spaces, and choice of materials, were all done with the objective of creating in the viewer and visitor a sense of moving between dimensions – from the day-to-day, the simple and the often inferior – to a place that is sublime, inspiring and of awesome majesty – homes to those among the people raised to privilege– the representatives of God on earth.
From the architect. The house is located in the Serra da Mantiqueira, in the city of Amparo, Sao Paulo. The nature of the site, with steep incline and privileged view we chose to design the residence towards the formation of a platform, with a public and wide dimension. In the shaded area, which features the living room, dining room, kitchen and laundry area, much of it is glazed allowing, this way, the full visibility of the external environment.

“We are not saying that This house is 100 percent Thai, But at least it’s a try” LSR113 is situated on Bangna road, Samuthprakarn, Thailand, on the lakefront plot of private housing property known as ‘Lakeside villa’. The house is built as one-family house which provided a flexibility to be expanded into multi-family for the future. The briefs that designer received from the client was for functional spaces like any normal house, though what they really liked were square, modern style house, but they asked that it should not be hot inside and has to suit with Thai Climate.
