5 Modern Homes in Israel

Tall and surprisingly open, the Tel Aviv Town House by Pitsou Kedem Architects continues in the tradition of its Bauhaus-inspired neighbors with a white facade and black window frames. The six-story, 4,843-square-foot town house certainly meets that brief, with the white exterior and huge black-framed windows creating a contemporary update on Bauhaus forms. Inside, suspended floors mean that each level is both open and adaptable, and because the house is divided up between so many floors, the black steel staircase doubles as an architectural showpiece and a perpetually used bit of circulation.
