Pitsou Kedem Architects Jaffa Apartment is Rocky

Pitsou Kedem Architect's Jaffa apartment brandishes the allure of ancient Gothic abodes. Beige pieces of stone mark the roofs of the dwelling, and though this look characterizes many Israeli landmarks (the Western Wall among them), it has seldom been replicated in the modern architectural sphere.

The official description released by Pitsou Kedem Architects takes note of this Jaffa apartment's historic legacy. It charts back hundreds of years, making its restoration all the more complex. The builders in turn decided to opt for the sites original features, hence the use of stone walls.

Kedem's commitment to both the old and the new is also apparent here however, present in the forms of stainless steel appliances, clean open spaces and a general 'urban loft' feel.
