Ramat Hasharon, Israel
The Oak building is comprised of 64 residential units of 150 sqm which are sub-divided into three modular typologies to allow for variation and adaptable configurations. Each module is distinguished from the other through their adjustable façade, with the roof providing the dual function of serving as the balcony floor for the unit above it. This unique composition provides depth to the façade, whilst introducing a play of light and shadow on to the building skin.
The east and west façades are separated in to two components, which together enclose a white circumferential frame that is punctuated by color-graded cubes, thus emphasizing the contextual height of the building and giving an overall refined finish to the architecture.
