Mediterranean Abode is Marvelous Mixture of Old and New

Designed by Israeli architect Pitsou Kedem, Jaffa Flat is a charming mixture of old and new. While the vaulted stone ceiling is centuries old, the living space beneath it is a modern creation.

Exterior arches have been repurposed as windows, and these allow in plenty of natural light so that the interior doesn’t feel like an ancient catacomb. The arched windows also offer views of the port of Old Jaffa.

One thought on “Mediterranean Abode is Marvelous Mixture of Old and New

    I love how the stone, water, glass, and steel work together to seem open and serene- old… yet modern, bright and white, and yet also captures the evening light. The outdoor living space adds to it. What a shame that such a beautiful example of humanities best efforts sit along the edge of conflict that is older than the stone in the walls.
    This world need more beautiful and less of the rest.
