Patio Townhouse in Neve Tzedek

Best Implemented Apartment / Private House Interior Design Project

About the project
The Patio Townhouse is a terraced house with front and rear façades, facing the historic Neve Tzedek's quiet and narrow streets. The original two-story house, built in the 1920s, was declared a building for preservation in the urban renewal and preservation plan of Tel Aviv. The Construction additions were designed in retreat from the front façade, extended at its rear to a zero lot line adjacent to the street. At the place of the connection between the old part and the new one, the open-air patio was designed. The movement scheme on the main floor that connects the spacious kitchen and living room takes place around the patio that gave the house its name. «The patio is an anchor, a light well immersed in green in the center of the house. All life takes place around, and inside it, all spaces face it, even on the upper floors. It is undoubtedly the beating heart of the house,» says Oberson.
