Mendeli Street Hotel: a fusion of tradition, modern, and nature

Share on:

Mendeli Street Hotel enlisted Baranowitz Kronenberg Architecture to overhaul the interiors, reflecting the local heritage but also emphasising contemporary Israeli culture.


The result is a stylish and relaxing hotel with a truly unique feel, with plenty of natural light (some of the exterior wall was replaced by expansive glass partitions).

The predominantly neutral palette of the hotel is enlivened by the range of materials and textures used, which lift the grey and brown hues, and the accents of olive green add a bit of pep and carry the natural, earthy tones.

The nature theme is showcased best by the living wall across the main stretch of the restaurant area, which provides some really unique texture as well as bringing the outside in. The bright green vegetation adds a lovely fresh touch to the understated interior and is a novel twist on the humble pot plant.

The design completely accomplishes its aim of a ‘city square’ feel and this is most noticeable in the mixture of styles on display. Tradition is represented on the ground, with its Terrazzo flooring, and the heavens, with Hebrew scripture-inspired ironwork adorning the ceiling. Meanwhile, a range of aspects of the hotel’s look and feel are open to contributions from local up and coming artist and designers, giving them a platform to experiment and showcase.
