In Herzliya, north of Tel Aviv on the Mediterranean coast, a stylish, single-family home has been designed as a succession of interconnected thresholds that proceed through the building. Aluminum latticework screens have been used as a device to create subtle intermediary spaces. A series of progressive stages play out between the main entry gate and the rear garden of the N2 House. For more on this project, please see a detailed report in issue 26 of Swisspearl Architecture magazine.
For many years now, Swisspearl has been developing innovative and sustainable products made from natural materials - in the spirit of invention and with expert skills - for use in building envelopes, interior design and gardens, while being focused on aesthetics, quality and responsibility towards people and the environment. Swisspearl's products from its workshops in Niederurnen and Payerne in Switzerland have become an essential part of Swiss building culture - and have also quickly won over the rest of the (building) world.
Swisspearl Architecture features buildings that represent a wide variety of typologies and scales. In addition to the use of Swisspearl's fibre-cement cladding, all these disparate buildings share their lack of specificity to a place and the cross-18 pollination of forms. The magazine shows how using fibre-cement cladding increases design diversity. It covers a plethora of great architectural inspirations and is definitely worth a look.
