Historic Meets Minimalism

If you just take a look at these pictures and see the architectural beauty of this historic residential flat in Jaffa, Tel Aviv,Israel, I’m sure you’ll say this place is “cool” and I’ll agree with you. The architecture and the views of this place are out-of-this-world cool! I fell in love with this place the moment I saw it, but at the same time the very minimalist decor got me thinking: Should we mix historic with ultra contemporary elements? I know we see this often in the world of design and I’m a believer there’s no such thing as onlyone right form to design any kind of style. Therefore, I wonder what most of you think about this mix.

The flat was designed by Israeli based Pitsou Kedem Architects.  The 100 square metre (1,076.4 square feet) residential flat which overlooks the majestic splendor of the Mediterranean Sea is very unique not only for its location but also for the structure itself.

I think this table is a beautiful piece and the chairs look great, but I wonder how comfortable they actually are.

It’s almost impossible to not fall in love with the architecture of this place!

This kitchen is so sleek that it’s almost not there.

The main areas of the flat.

I’d love to see this place in person because of these arches.

Even the art in this place feels minimalist but creates a big impact in this area.

Beautiful views are reflected by a mirror.

With all this beautiful space and views, only a single chair was added. I don’t think minimalism is reflecting comfort in this space.

Do you think a place with such strong architectural details like this one should have less or more furniture?

A little sink, a mirror and some storage.

It’s hard to look inside with the Mediterranean sea outside, but notice the shower is in the middle of the bedroom. Sexy or too invasive?

Oh, this view!

Truly inspiring…
