Designed by British architect John Pawson, this penthouse enjoys stunning views of Jaffa’s ancient port and the Mediterranean Sea.

To be completed this fall, the spacious penthouse spans 16,178 square feet of living space on the entire top floor, plus a 786-square-foot terrace with views of the sea. “The Penthouse displays upscale design, combined with high livability. We have been in partnership with esteemed designer John Pawson since his design of the New York City Gramercy Park Hotel. He has now placed his signature minimalistic style into the design of the penthouse for this exciting collaboration,” shares Aby Rosen, co-founder and principal of RFR Holding.

The buyer of the penthouse will work in conjunction with Pawson’s office to “create a bespoke place based on his design concepts.” The penthouse has a private entrance to the W Hotel, with easy access to a gourmet restaurant, lounge bar and an exclusive beach club.

The W Tel Aviv Hotel is within the walls of a 19th-century building that has fused the architectural integrity of nearby structures with the W Hotel’s trademark amenities.
