The glass material used for its construction is 6 to 7 mm thick. The material can be specially heated during the winter which is one of the best and most demanded characteristic feature.

Located in Arbel Israel the house displaying country-style-inspired beams on the outside is a comfortable crib open to the north through a glass facade. This large glazed side allowed the architects to construct a concrete wall blocking the views from the south and offering privacy to the interior spaces.
The interior is awe-inspiring. A relatively larger courtyard in the exact middle complements the whole design. Here the actual ground is maintained as such along with the trees. The pillars in black are another spectacular feature. Following a style that is quite simple and inviting the house uses white as the basic hue while off white and cream add support.
The dining area takes advantage of the wide floor to ceiling windows allowing the natural light from outside to brighten up your breakfast. The trees outside provide privacy for a large portion of the year.
Schnieders is but not satisfied with the small size of the bathroom and the style of the kitchen. He also does not like the ceiling fans. But we feel that the fans are just alright in terms of the traditional accessories the house has been adorned with.

The design of the ceilings and the walls remind of the vibrant 70s or 80s. Decorations are not just the features that get emphasis here the house also fulfills the demands of all the residents. Designed by Turkish studio Yazgan Design Architecture the has employed all those elements that go well with the climate of Ankara.
The couple admits that it had been a lot of work to renovate the whole structure which included even the shaping up of each and every single irregular stone. The home has four floors in total connected through an elevator accessed from an underground garage and wine cellar.
