Archaic minimalism

Posted on Fri, 16 Oct 2015 by midcenturyjo

The building in the old quarter of the port city of Jaffa, Israel is hundreds of years old but the living spaces are modern and minimalist. Much of the character had been removed by previous owners so architect Pitsou Kedem striped the walls and ceilings back to the beautiful, ancient stone before combining old with new. All with the spartan aesthetic common to the simple stone dwelling and the now minimalist modern interiors.

Inspirational usage of space and materials! Just brilliant.

I love that cross-stitched rug in that space.

Sigh!!! … it feels homely and inviting despite its minimalist style. Beautiful space and combinations and what a stunning view too! Serious house envy!
