Old Jaffa House [Tel Aviv]

Ottoman architecture and modernity meet in the interior of an Old Jaffa House by Pitsou Kedem Architects. Located in Tel Aviv, the house is adjacent to a Jaffa Port and revolves around a central patio. Original arches were preserved and with an eye to create a flow between spaces, they were filled with glass doors in bronze frames. Soft light penetrates different rooms, sometimes divided only by custom-made partitions.

The project was complemented with a thoughtful use of materials – stone, light wood or concrete. These add a minimalist feel to the space that appears as a dream background for the beauty of the Mediterranean.
