Factory Jaffa House by Pitsou Kedem Architect, Israel
Factory Jaffa House was designed by Pitsou Kedem Architect, and is located in Jaffa, Israel. It was completed in 2013, and covers an area of 1,940 square feet. 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.
