Yiftah House

Yiftah House is a residential building constructed on a very small triangular site while retaining a historically preserved façade from 1930. The triangular site, preservation laws, zoning restrictions and a brief requiring 4 residential units with underground parking posed a true design challenge. To realize the design program, while achieving optimal light and air, the building was designed in a telescopic configuration.

What was the brief?
To create 4 residential units with underground parking

What were the key challenges?
Five primary factors created substantial design challenges:
1. A narrow triangular site.
2. A preserved stepped facade,
3. Strict zoning guidelines
4. A heavy design brief
5. Multiple preserved trees

The design objective was to overcome these challenges and create high quality residential units with optimal natural light qualities and views to the outdoors.
