‘…these powerful organs of expression — colour and chiaroscuro…’ John Constable

Light is a defining element of the material palette of the recently completed Jaffa Hotel in Tel Aviv. Respecting the value a climate of this nature places on shadow, new and old architecture is patterned by sunshine filtering through perforated metal screens, dappling the stone surfaces inside and out with a rhythmic chiaroscuro of light and shade.
