Project involved new building and 10-year restoration of monastery
John Pawson has completed the conversion of a 19th-century neo-classical monastery into a hotel in Israel.
The project involved a decade-long process of restoring the ecclesiastical building, which also previously operated as a hospital, in the 4,000-year-old port city of Jaffa.
Pawson added a new building alongside the historic fabric, resulting in a 120-room hotel with 32 flats, an outdoor pool and other amenities including restaurants and a backgammon lounge. Together the new building and U-shaped historic building enclose a landscaped courtyard.
