Private homes are a rarity in Tel Aviv’s central neighborhoods and are primarily restricted to the historic homes found in the Lev Hair and Neve Tzedek neighborhoods. For this reason, this fantastic home in Tel Aviv’s Old North neighborhood designed by one of Israel’s most respected architects, Pitsou Kedem, has been attracting a lot of press both in Israel and abroad. Soaring six stories high and topped off by a rooftop pool, this 450 square meter (4,843 square foot) townhouse is a highly modern and minimalist structure, but as is increasingly popular in the city today, heavily influenced by Tel Aviv’s heritage Bauhaus buildings. Combining both open spaces and intimate private quarters, Kedem brilliantly realized the clients’ wish for a seamless “oasis in an urban setting”. Enjoy!
