영국 미니멀리스트 존 포슨의 이스라엘 텔아비브에 위치한 오크와 미니멀한 데코가가 돋보이는 자파호텔 입니다. 빛의 연출자이자 마밥사인 포슨이 보수적인 미니멀리즘을 유지하면서 군데군데 보여주는 그림자의연출은 그의 시그니쳐를 보여주기에 충분합니다.
“Pawson and Gill spent over a decade on the meticulous restoration and renovation process which sought to maintain the original raw, untouched surfaces,” said the project description.
“The duo worked together to create a space in which the old and new seamlessly blend together.”
이두 디자이너들은 새로움과 과거의 지속적인 혼합을 만들어내고 있습니다.
The residences are located inside the newly built wing of the Jaffa Hotel, and feature sliding glass doors joined by perforated metal screens across the exterior.
The screen takes cues from Middle Eastern mashrabiya (oriel windows) and adds privacy and reduces solar gain, while creating shadows as the sun passed across them, inside.
Most of the residences have views of the former hospital and courtyard, while others have views of the Mediterranean Sea. The units differ from some of the hotel’s very contemporary suites in their more Scandinavian yet still minimal design.
The rooms have 30 centimetre wide, bleached white oak planks floors, white walls and plenty of built-in storage. Kitchen cabinetry and countertops, storage closets, and doors are all painted white to blend in with the walls, and are flush in design.
lmost all of the furnishings are made of oak to match the floors, and midcentury Getama couches designed by Danish modernist Hans Wegner with pale cushions. The bedrooms have large, lightwood beds with integrating side tables, light fixtures and outlets within the frames.
Continuing the seamless, minimal effect, the units have a predominantly cream-and-white colour palette. Pops of caramel leather on chairs and large photographs on the walls by Israeli artist Tal Shochat, break up the aesthetic.

Each of the residences is accessed by a dimly lit hallway clad in dark wood. Internal doors separate the apartments from hotel suites, characterised by lighter wood walls.
Residents may enter via a separate, private entrance in the rear, or from the main hotel lobby. All of the residences have access to the amenities and services at The Jaffa Hotel.
The Jaffa Hotel and Residences are owned by Aby Rosen, co-founder of hotel and real estate company RFR Holding. “Jaffa has undergone a fantastic transformation, with the property market blossoming and an increased demand for luxury residentials,” said Rosen. “We put a lot of effort into making this project unique to the location.”
Also currently underway at the Jaffa Hotel is a 1,500-square-metre penthouse with a private rooftop designed by Israeli architecture firm Pitsou Kedem.
Pitsou Kedem previously designed another residence in the historic port city called Jaffa House, which has exposed vaulted ceilings so common there.
Pawson was recently recognised as a Commander of the Order of the British Empire (CBE) in Queen Elizabeth II’s New Year’s Honours list 2019.

WDS 생각 존포슨의 과거 작품에 비해서 빛 과 컬러를 이용한 공간의 절제된 미니멀리즘적 표현과 디자인에 비해서는 확연히 intensity 가떨어지기것 같습니다. 그러나 호텔로서 실용적이어야 하고 기존빌딩의 과거의 역사성을 담아 내야하는 제한된조건에서 여러디자이너들과 코업을통해 만들어낸 좋은 결과물이라고 생각합니다. 하지만 과거의 포슨작품에 비해서는 조금 뒤처지는것 같습니다.
