Old Meets New in a Jaffa Apartment

In the ancient Israeli city of Jaffa, which in our time has become part of Tel Aviv, Pitsou Kedem Architect completed a loving renovation of an old stone-walled apartment fit with luxurious modern interiors that would normally be found in a glass box house.

The building itself has undergone endless cosmetic transformations throughout the centuries, so the architects carefully exposed the original building structure and restored it where necessary. Many walls were removed to create a loft-like flow interrupted only by the historic structural elements. Stainless steel and Corian were added in the wet rooms to create a clean look that would not distract from the ancient beauty of the space, but would also remain true to the modern materials available to the designers. Furnishings are also kept sleek and minimal for the same purpose.
