As architects we design spaces for people – spaces that promote a sense of place, calling their visitors to linger. We created Object to complete this experience. Our objects express the delicate balance between the human scale and architecture, presenting their users with an holistic experience. We seek to design unique objects that are user friendly and accessible.
Objects that transcend trends and remain true to our everyday lives We seek to enrich our daily rituals with everyday objects that offer an original and surprising experience The design of our objects is a playful dance between masses and plains, a constant motion between volume and void

Projects Pitsou Kedem Architect

Y Duplex Penthouse
Pitsou Kedem Architect

This is a small yet complex project of a duplex apartment renovation that was, for the architects, an especially challenging project. How would it be possible to install meaning and architectural values to a roof top apartment in a “standard” uninspired design multi-story building located amongst a row of similar structures in one of Tel Aviv’s bourgeois neighborhoods The apartment was designed to integrate with the architectural language and characteristics of other projects by the architectural firm and thus, using modern architectural values, it combines modern elements by using materials in their raw form: exposed concrete wall, iron stairs and furniture, a terrazzo floor, poured on-site and unpainted wood.

Taizu Restaurant
Pitsou Kedem Architect

The interior is rooted in two main themes - the five elements of ancient Chinese Philosophy (Fire, Water, Metal, Wood and Earth) and the culinary DNA of the menu. The flavors, textures and colours are based on celebrated chef Yuval Ben Neria’s personal interpretation of street foods of five countries in South East Asia – India, China, Thailand, Cambodia and Vietnam. The restaurant belongs to the fine casual dining category delivering the highest level of food, design and hospitality in an informal and accessible setting.

Hezelia Home
Pitsou Kedem Architect

The house was built as a vacation home for a family living abroad. It is situated directly on the coast in the center of the country. The buildings architectural design is based on three central masses that surround a large internal courtyard with a swimming pool at its center. The masses comprise the border and the barrier between the street, the neighbors and the home's interior and between the internal courtyard and those same spaces. The central theme was to create dynamic walls that allow, on the one hand, the elimination of the boundary between the central courtyard and the internal spaces, and on the other hand, the creation of a changing and dynamic facade that allows for the total closure of the façade or different levels of exposure or concealment.

House Between 2 Gardens
Pitsou Kedem Architect

A private resident, built between two, central courtyards. A frontal courtyard excavated to a depth of three meters and the second courtyard at the level of the building's ground floor.This topographical interface creates a unique cross section to the building's mass with each part of the building, even the section constructed as a basement, being open to its own courtyard.

The S House
Pitsou Kedem Architect

The skyline - the meeting of earth and heaven - is the Archimedean point in every swath of architecture that orients the building in its surrounding. Whether it be built in a dense urban fabric, on a high mountain or a narrow, deep canyon - each building is measured by its sky. Classical architecture that developed within the bosom of the church, aspired toward the sublime, the dimensions were propelled upwards by way of vertical windows and tall columns. In contrast, however, modern architecture, particularly residential constructions, see the skyline as a backdrop of human creativity, a horizontal emphasis on the buildings’ dimensions or even as a mere tool serving human needs.

Tel Aviv Townhouse
Pitsou Kedem Architect

From the architect. A 270 square meter plot was used as the foundation for a Tel Aviv town house consisting of a basement and an additional 6 floors. The owners wanted to create the experience of life in a private residence but within the city. The architect, Pitsou Kedem, designed an urban style courtyard on the roof and, as a result, reversed the usually, permanent, order of things. The authentic, urban skyline reveals to those in the courtyard, Tel Aviv's rooftops and thus realizes the urban experience that the owners wanted to achieve. The architectural design was based on a cross section of the structure whilst creating a physical and visual relationship between all the floors. Each floor encompasses an area of some 100 square meters with every floor being used for a different purpose. This enables the house's residents to create common meeting spaces alongside separated spaces that, together, maximize the usage off the space and maximize the privacy that day to day life in a home requires.
