"It was important for us to have a connection with what the children were doing when they played or did their homework,” say the owners of this open plan home in Moshav Batzra, which emits good vibes the moment one walks through the front door.

Maybe it’s the slanting roof extending seven or eight meters above the whole area; maybe it’s the child-friendly playroom and family room situated just off the kitchen and the colorful toys and collections of plastic cartoon and fairy-tale characters around the shelves; maybe even the latter-day version of Roman lares and penates watching over the family in the shape of two rows of family photos, some going back to great-grandparents in Polish villages at the turn of the century; but the house exudes a laid-back tranquility and the feeling that it is a child-oriented paradise.
