ron kedmi's residence in jaffa blends industrial details with natural light


the ‘jaffa’ residence of israeli photographer ron kedmi has been completed. an expansive, open-plan property in jaffa, in south tel-aviv, the home blends industrial details with warm wood accents and plentiful natural light for a clean, timeless feel. the dwelling was aided in creation by lighting specialist noam garfinkel, and styled by fashion designer sharon brunsher.

the ground floor contains elements of work and living; a full-studio equipment setup is deployable within minutes, extending into a large kitchen and dining area. cantilevered stairs connect to a floating loft, where a private drum room can be found alongside kedmi’s master bed and bath. architectural planning and interior design was completed by ron kedmi.

about the project, kedmi explains, ‘crafting this house was a reverse action for me. on a daily basis I transform the three-dimensional world in two-dimensional photographs; in the case of the house, I turned my sketches and drawings into a three-dimensional living space.’
