The house is sited in the French Carmel neighborhood of Haifa where the houses on the surrounding historic avenue are in the Bauhaus style; the minimalism of the 1930s.

A very grand home for a very grand neighborhood.

According to the architects: “Despite the fact that different worlds and different eras exist in the space between the historical Bauhaus of the avenue and that of this modern and minimalistic home, there still exists a relationship between them, a feeling that one is not strange to the other.”
