Factory Jaffa House – Israel

When it comes to contemporary renovations of historic structures, Pitsou Kedem Architects are masters of their craft.  Their new Factory Jaffa House in the Israeli port city of Jaffa is a remarkable restoration, a 300-year-old building given new life with a breathtaking design.

The Factory Jaffa House was gutted back to its centuries-old skeleton with very precise care.  “Gutted” may be too strong a word, as the near-archeological preservation of the original structure is a central element of Pitsou Kedem’s design.  It presents a kind of contrast that can’t be built in new properties– the opposing forces of history and contemporary design.  A walk through Factory Jaffa House yields the feeling of a stroll through history with modern convenience and visual inspiration.

The Factory Jaffa House is a masterwork of designer restoration, a type of project that has become a signature standard for Pitsou Kedem Architects.  It is a practice that other cities around the world should work to adopt– the preservation of architectural history through modern renovation.  [architect: pitsou kedem architects photographer: amit geron]
