A Townhouse in Tel Aviv by David Lebenthal Architects

David Lebenthal Architects designed a modern townhouse, named Mendelkern, in southeast Tel Aviv within a small and quiet neighborhood, which has been undergoing regentrification in recent years. The design makes way for a young family and is spread out over three floors, plus a bonus rooftop terrace.

Despite its narrow lot size, the home feels bright and roomy on the ground floor, as they  avoided dividing the space up with walls.

The open staircase is set behind a wall of metal rods that hold a series of shelves on the outer side.
