Modern History

An Arab House for Preservation is located in the heart of an old Jerusalem neighborhood, Characterized by a combination of old and new, allows a glimpse into the unique texture of historic homes alongside a vibrant and modern young life.

The work of planning and design aims to preserve the character of the house and the neighborhood environment.

And give an up-to-date contemporary interpretation alongside the preservation of the old and its strengthening in national raw materiality

The space is redistributed by double-sided carpentry partitions, in order to allow transitions and gentle flow between the spaces,

Preservation of the authentic stone walls of the building, as well as emphasizing the arches in the window openings and renewing the iron shutters

Emphasize the coarse materiality of the iron stone and brass light fixtures

And all this alongside carpentry details and unique furniture combined with natural and soft textiles

The result is an eclectic, rich, young, fresh, and statement-filled space
