John Pawson designs Tel Aviv W Hotel penthouse
The 16,178 square foot penthouse was inspired by Jaffa’s historical heritage.

London-based John Pawson designed the penthouse for W Hotel’s property in Tel Aviv. The 1,503-square-meter (16,178-square-foot) penthouse was inspired by Jaffa’s historical heritage.

The penthouse, slated for completion later in 2016, has views of the city’s ancient port and the Mediterranean Sea.

Located within the walls of the 19th century complex that once housed Jaffa’s French Hospital, this project is set within a historically protected neighborhood of Tel Aviv. The project also preserves historical elements while introducing technological features. Pawson is making use of a variety of materials, including a specially designed perforated screen for the property’s openings, created to filter sunlight and views.
