This house in Herzliya is located on a long and narrow plot, and is blocked from the west to airflow and light by an adjacent house. To overcome this, the residence is built as a series of protruding segments breaking out the contour in the east to allow for multiple openings facing the north and south, creating channels for airflow, and maximizing light intake from these directions.

To make the residence energy efficient, heat isolating techniques, such as insulating material and thick walls, were implemented, rainwater and dew collecting structures were placed, and so were a solar water heater and a composting device.
