Auerbach-Halevy architects designed House K as a 9-meter high concrete block without visible openings. The modern Arabic structure is covered with a uniform system of exposed concrete panels and heavy wood latticework, referring to the eastern trellis (“mashrabia”). According to the architects:

"In HOUSE K the pre-cast concrete panels participate in the interior design, dictate the rhythm in the house and affect its scale. The same system of dimensions was used in the exterior dismantle of the cube mass, and for the interior of the house, as a guide for furniture layout and decorative objects. This idea goes all the way to the fine details up to the design of the book’s shelves."
