Jaffa restaurant by BK Architects, Tel-Aviv

September 21st, 2012 by retail design blog

A new restaurant in Tel-Aviv pays homage to the city’s historic charm. Though seemingly a simple design on first glace, the interior unveils multiple layers of elements that were carefully planned for the space. The concrete walls have been polished so reflecting light bounces off the shiny stone to brighten the space. The walls are partially covered with patchwork Turkish carpets to block noise travel.

Wood tables and chairs by Dutch designer Piet Hein Eek, mixed with second hand furniture and recycled lamps from the Czech Republic, highlight a deliberate blend of cultures. Wooden shutters bring a lively and mutant atmosphere to the room, projecting patterns of shade onto the walls at different levels throughout the day. An open kitchen overlooks the dining room, allowing guests to gather around it. ‘It’s the embodiment of hospitality,’ say BK Architects, who designed the space for Israeli chef Haim Cohen.
