Architect Pitsou Kedem constructed a modern beaut dubbed the “S House” in the beachfront district of Herzliva, Israel. The two-story abode touts a ground floor that is primarily ladened with glass walls that can rotate and retract. Conversely, the second floor is built entirely with concrete and is underpinned by a steel skeleton. The juxtaposing building materials make for a rather exquisite structure that also possesses a poolside terrace on the lower floor. Contemporary decor is fitted inside every room of the 750-square-meter home with timber slats affixed to the exterior of the more private rooms.
