The BBZ House by Arnon Nir Architecture is a modern days dwell featuring cutting edge design but with clear references to ancient building traditions. Located on a large lot of 4,000 square meters (approx 43,000 sf) in a Moshav in the center of Israel the “T” shaped, single level structure, was the answer to the client’s will to create three separate living areas – parents, children and guest wings. One of the unique design elements of the BBZ house is the fact that the core walls are built with dry stone technique. Well known and commonly used since thousands of years across the entire planet from many different cultures dry stone technique is rarely seen to be used in contemporary architecture for many reasons such as high manufacturing cost, low energy efficiency and slow building process. The final result is definitely stunning to say the very least.
