Pitsou Kedem Architect

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

Hezelia Home

The house was built as a vacation home for a family living abroad. It is situated directly on the coast in the center of the country. The buildings architectural design is based on three central masses that surround a large internal courtyard with a swimming pool at its center. The masses comprise the border and the barrier between the street, the neighbors and the home's interior and between the internal courtyard and those same spaces. The central theme was to create dynamic walls that allow, on the one hand, the elimination of the boundary between the central courtyard and the internal spaces, and on the other hand, the creation of a changing and dynamic facade that allows for the total closure of the façade or different levels of exposure or concealment.

House Between 2 Gardens
Pitsou Kedem Architect

A private resident, built between two, central courtyards. A frontal courtyard excavated to a depth of three meters and the second courtyard at the level of the building's ground floor.This topographical interface creates a unique cross section to the building's mass with each part of the building, even the section constructed as a basement, being open to its own courtyard.

The S House
Pitsou Kedem Architect

The skyline - the meeting of earth and heaven - is the Archimedean point in every swath of architecture that orients the building in its surrounding. Whether it be built in a dense urban fabric, on a high mountain or a narrow, deep canyon - each building is measured by its sky. Classical architecture that developed within the bosom of the church, aspired toward the sublime, the dimensions were propelled upwards by way of vertical windows and tall columns. In contrast, however, modern architecture, particularly residential constructions, see the skyline as a backdrop of human creativity, a horizontal emphasis on the buildings’ dimensions or even as a mere tool serving human needs.

Tel Aviv Townhouse
Pitsou Kedem Architect

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.

Haifa House
Pitsou Kedem Architect

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.

Ramat Hasharon House 6
Pitsou Kedem Architect

A home situated in the center of the country and designed as a family home. The architectural design of the structure is based on an exposed and tight concrete mass that is used as a massive and obvious framework for the structure’s spaces.

Float House
Pitsou Kedem Architect

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.
