The Jaffa Hotel
John Pawson
Tel Aviv, Israel
A 19thC neo-Roman monastery is home to a new hotel of the company RFR Holding, The Jaffa.

Ten years after construction work began, The Jaffa opens its doors to reveal a space loaded with symbolism and references to Middle East culture. The British architect John Pawson has spearheaded the job of restoring a neo-Roman monastery built in the 19th century and building an annex. The historical enclave had a large chapel, a porticoed courtyard, and vaulted galleries. The objective of the restoration was to give the hotel all the necessary luxuries without destroying the mythical, almost sacred essence of the monastery. Pastel tones and noble materials are used. The Jaffa offers 120 hotel rooms, 32 apartments, an outdoor swimming pool, and two restaurants with an Art Déco aesthetic that are subtly attached to the original structure.
