A family home in Israel

This family house located in Ramat Hasharon is designed by Keren Milchberg Porat. She used raw and recycled materials.

‎‏‎‏Originally the owners were inspired by prefab techniques and concepts. But "due to the fact that they couldn't find any local Israeli contractor with validated prefab experience, and their budget was too tight to simply fly in a crew from the states or Europe, they decided to go the only way they could—with conventional and traditional building methods popular in Israel," says Porat. "But certain prefab-inspired design elements remained, such as cement floors, industrial roofing, extensive use of large windows, and large deck areas that surround the interior of the house."

A great way of using traditional building methods combined with modern materials and a different approach created by the original inspiration.
