Gottesman-Szmelcman Architecture use white fair-faced concrete to echo the existing topography and integrate this building's façade into the surrounding sand dunes
Gottesman-Szmelcman Architecture, the award-winning Israeli-Franco firm, unveils The Arsuf Residences, located in the gated coastal community of Arsuf, Israel, north of Tel Aviv. Nestled within a cliff overlooking the Mediterranean Sea adjacent to Apollonia National Park, the 10 private residences negotiate between the dramatic landscape of the coastal sand dunes and the built environment.
A long planned development, The Arsuf Residences began over twenty years ago as an invited competition. The waterfront project by Gottesman-Szmelcman Architecture was designed to maximize sea views while leaving room for individual experimentation with the interior design of all 10 private residential units. The residences feature large western-facing terraces and cantilevered concrete caskets that define its form and allow expansive views of the Mediterranean Sea.
