Jaffa Apartment by Pitsou Kedem Architects

In the old city of Jaffa, Pitsou Kedem Architects built a beautiful luxury apartment on top of a hillside overlooking the Mediterranean Sea. The minimalist apartment pays tribute to it's historical architecture by maintaining a subtle look and allowing the historic stonework to take a dominant role in the design.

 The design team explained that "The central idea was to combine the old and the new while maintaining the qualities of each and to create new spaces that blend the styles together even intensify them because of the contrast and tension between the different periods." The first step to executing this concept was to restore the original stone walls, because of damage over time. Once the stone was restored the team brought in modern furniture pieces, each pieces being white or beige. light color furniture was chosen in order not to disrupt the historic architecture, but to complement it.
