About HK House
Upon entry, the living area unveils its monolithic centerpiece: a dark, angular staircase that commands attention. Its concrete form, an epitome of industrial design, creates a dramatic ascent against the white walls. The surrounding space, with its understated furniture and hardwood floors, balances the starkness of the concrete, suggesting a warm invitation into the home’s upper echelon.
In the kitchen, functionality marries elegance, boasting a central island with a polished countertop reflecting the natural light that pours in through floor-to-ceiling windows. The dark, matte cabinetry offers a sleek counterpoint, exuding a clean, modern aesthetic. Here, the design nods to the culinary artist, providing a stage that’s both practical and visually arresting.
Dining with a View
Adjacent to the kitchen, the dining area presents a tableau perfect for gatherings. A robust table anchors the space, surrounded by chairs that echo the home’s color scheme. Above, contemporary lighting fixtures add a sculptural element. The outdoor view serves as a living backdrop, ensuring that, while the interior speaks of industrial chic, the connection to nature remains unbroken.
Shallem’s HK House in Ra’anana, Israel, thus reveals itself as a masterclass in industrial design, where each element is curated to celebrate the style’s raw beauty and functional ethos.
