T / A house by Paritzki & Liani Architects
The T / A House is a luxurious contemporary residence designed by Architects Paritzki & Liani in a private residential neighborhood in Tel Aviv, Israel. The house was designed for a family of four whose main request was for their new home to be centered around their art collection. To achieve that, the architects have used three parallel squares to form various T / A House spaces.
A T / A house is a three-stretch structure formed from four parallel walls producing three volumes; these are as high as 3,4,5 and 2,8 meters and occupy long and narrow terrain.
This volume is positioned additively on the site between the exterior and interior of the house to create interconnected rooms with the same proportion.
This connected room model – something that can also be found in vernacular architecture such as farmhouses in Puglia, rural Catalan agriculture, and a three-part house plan in Jaffa – allows permeable flow between the activities of the residents of the house. and their social life.
The main entrance of the roadside park, placed diagonally with respect to the front door, filters activities inside the house. The entire length of the lot can be seen from the front door of the highest volume. The possible path to be followed is indicated by a wide threshold between two internal walls, placed face to face just outside the entrance.
The volume that contains the kitchen and family room overlooking the deep garden also has a view of the internal terrace located in front of it as well as from two private rooms in the night zone. The library, the last room in the living room, acts as a crossing point to arrive at the parents’ private apartment.
The central volume is a gallery that contains a family’s personal collection of images and also a crossing point for all movements in the house. This is where the movement of people in buildings is interspersed with observation points between objects, collections, and internal trees.
