yoma architects clads luxury penthouse in marble and brass detailing in jerusalem

israeli firm yoma architects crafted the luxurious phl penthouse that overlooks jerusalem’s old city. with a refined aesthetic, attention to small details and an exquisite execution, all 400 sqm of the space spanning across two levels and two rooftops, are welcoming yet sophisticated. upon entering the penthouse, guests are greeted by a marble-clad vestibule with brass highlights and a mesmerizing lighting sculpture that resembles cords hanging from the ceiling of the double-height space.




the owner’s dream was to create a space that gathers the entire family and could replace the presidential suite at the hotel across the road. in this project, yoma architects dedicated a great deal of thought to the small details, while focusing on cohesive, elegant materials and finding unique solutions for systems.  collaborations with artists and professionals from israel and around the world enabled the desired modern aesthetic complete with signature design pieces.




in the penthouse’s top level, yoma architects included the social areas including the living room, kitchen, dining room and guest bathrooms. the living room includes brass details, present in the delicate lattice shading panels and in the matching air conditioning grill. the elegant geometries complement the round furnishings. a muted teal pops from the neutral beige and whites of the spaces, coming together in a modern yet cozy environment.




the living room and dining room are separated by a double-sided marble-lined fireplace. this acts as the social area’s centerpiece and its brass detailing finishes the look. the guest bathrooms keep a minimal aesthetic, boasting a hollow glass cube acting as a sink basin with a stunning black tube coming down from the ceiling, acting as the faucet.




the first level hosts the private spaces including three mini-suites, a master suite, stairs and balconies. the master bedroom features delicate details and contemporary color and material palettes. it includes a vanity and a desk finished with a red velvet chair, spherical modern lighting fixtures over the nightstands and a moss green headboard and matching chaise. the distinct elements combine into a sophisticated room. 




the master bedroom also includes a spacious walk-in closet, complete with integrated lighting on the clothes racks, marble flooring and frosted glass doors. light tan leather ottomans complete the room. the master bathroom is equally as luxurious, clad in white marble and enclosing both the shower and the toilet in floor-to-ceiling glass cubes. the stand alone bathtub acts as the bathroom’s centerpiece, overlooking an exterior balcony filled with planters. the attention to details, materials and finishes make yoma architects’ penthouse design a unique space within jerusalem.
