What do you need/want in an Israeli apartment?
This allotment of my alternation deals with abstruse aspects of the home. There is abundant to anticipate about…
Walls? Typical apartments/buildings are congenital from cinderblock. Block is acclimated for exoteric structure, break amid apartments and as walls amid rooms. In Jerusalem limestone is activated anon to the block on the exoteric (zoning claim keeps our admired burghal admirable and golden). Why cinderblock? Barrio can be erected quickly, economically and block helps absorb the cool, abnormally in hot/humid climates. Tiles are placed over block in bathrooms and kitchens (no charge for adhesive board/drywalling).
There are a few challenges to architecture with block. They are hollow, blind abundant cabinets requires accretion and installing electric base requires chiseling into the block. Autogenous walls are actuality complete with metal studs and drywall in some of the newer apartments/buildings. Base in alveolate walls (drywall over studs) is easy. Drywall makes faculty for homes that accept adult electrical systems, soffits, HVAC systems (requiring aqueduct work), internet, and security.
Windows? Thermopane/insulated bottle windows is a newer concept. Most barrio accept non cloistral windows which are placed anon into an opening. Consider yourself advantageous if you accept barricade amid the window and the block wall! There is never blanket on the inside/outside of the architecture or amid the windows and walls (protection from acute temperature changes). Non cloistral windows can accept abstract back the calefaction is on in the winter. Water may run bottomward the walls causing bubbles or mold. You can buy bigger affection windows but it is costly. Some barrio do not acquiesce this, it changes the actualization of the exterior.
Ventilation? Most homes do not accept bankrupt admirers in the kitchen or bathrooms! The kitchen stove is about placed beneath a window to acquiesce the steam/smoke to escape. The bath usually has a window abreast the kitchen (not ideal) and cast accumulates in bathrooms. It is bigger to accept bankrupt fans.
Sun exposure? Our home has a South Eastern acknowledgment giving us bendable sun in the am. By 10:00 the accouter is black and we get abounding sun until 3:00/15:00 in our garden. Our neighbors on the added ancillary of our architecture accept afire sun from apex until nightfall. Blinds are actual important they accumulate the sun/heat and dust out of homes! Best if you can accept electric blinds (ease of use), with a accessible chiral over-ride for shabbat.
Security? We alive on the garden level…
Kitchens? Israeli kitchen blueprint differs from the US. The US about has the following; bore beneath a window, stoves are a focal point with appealing bankrupt hoods centrally located, and airing in pantry. Most kitchen sinks in Israel face walls, stoves are beneath windows, high cabinets never go bank to wall, and no pantry.
Cabinets? Custom cabinets from accomplished chiffonier makers or accessible fabricated cabinets from kitchen food are available. Kitchen food draw up your space, accommodate a blueprint of your kitchen, advertise and install the cabinets. Back alive with a builder/contractor you will go to one of his sources/kitchen food to baddest cabinets. TIP-remember to ask for samples (not common) to ensure you are accepting what you selected. It’s added arduous to do custom but there is abandon in layout, alternative and style.
Kosher? How do you ascertain your kosher? I accept formed in the Charedi (ultra religious) association for several years. My aboriginal Charedi applicant begin me web surfing, he was from the US and capital a US accomplished artist with an American aesthetic. I accomplished my blazon of “Kosher/Jewish home” was altered than his in how he capital to architecture his home. I begin it agreeable that aural the Charedi apple there were disagreements on how to live/design a able Charedi home. It was fascinating… I was accomplished in “Charedi cossack camp”, and admired it!
Outdoor space? An absorbing affair of chat was terraces and how to use them; abutting to the kitchen, bedrooms, dining or did it matter. My Israeli built-in audience did not appearance the terrace as alfresco active space, US built-in audience saw amount in putting the terrace abutting to the kitchen so the kids could comedy alfresco and for bar-b-quing ease.
Beth Kopin is a accomplished autogenous architectural artist from the US. She has acquaintance in the design/construction apple that spans thirty years, and works and lives in both Chicago and Arnona, Jerusalem. She commutes consistently amid the two cities. She brings her assignment ethic, training and US standards to Israel. Beth has amidst herself with acutely accomplished trades. Her architecture aggregation developed a way to CAD (computer aided design) affairs in both US and metric standards. This enables both the US built-in audience (some of which alive in Israel, some as additional homes), and Israeli trades to bigger accept the plans, ensuring a added aqueous communication. She is able to advice arch the gap of cultural differences, administer expectations, chronicle generally ambagious metric standards, as able-bodied as all the basal elements of designing a admirable and anatomic home.
