Eco House in Herzelya by Sharon Neuman Architects

Architect Sharon Neuman amplifies eco-friendly in Herzelya, Israel. Adapting to the challenge of a long, narrow plot, Neuman has incorporated solutions into the house’s DNA. To overcome the restricted airflow that results from an adjacent house, protruding walls extend and provide for access to light and air. Subtler design details offer benefits, too: adobe blocks add to thermal mass; rainwater and dew collectors recycle water; and a composting device links the building with the land itself.
