The House "12 Olive Trees"

The House "12 Olive Trees" was created by the architectural bureau Elias Khuri Architects. It is located in Al-Mashhad, one of the Palestinian villages famous for its numerous olive trees. This house was named in honor of all the preserved trees that were integrated into the project.

The house is built from various natural materials: floors, stairs carved from stone, reminiscent of the use of traditional Palestinian techniques, wooden windows, and olive-colored ceramic tiles.

A large number of trees, minimalist architecture, natural materials, as well as references to the historical and cultural heritage of Palestine form a deep sense of belonging and identity.
