The Levee: A New Hospitality Venture Captures Tel Aviv’s Zeitgeist

Gracefully revamped during ten years of meticulous restoration by Tel Aviv-based Bar Orian Architects, the two-storey villa is crowned by a new rooftop-spanning penthouse whose contemporary sensibility, far from clashing with the century-old architecture, creates a hybrid sensibility that captures the city’s zeitgeist.

Housed in a historic villa in Neve Tzedek, one of the oldest neighbourhoods in Tel Aviv, Israel, “The Levee” is the town’s latest hospitality arrival offering eight spacious apartments of understated luxury and contemporary sophistication where guests can feel at home.

Designed by Israeli-Belgian interior designer Yael Siso, The Levee’s eight apartments follow the exterior’s eclectic paradigm by combining an industrial vibe with a refined aesthetic based on mid-century elegance and modern minimalism.

Le Corbusier’s Renovated Private Apartment in Paris

The project was carried out by a multidisciplinary team including architecture practice François Chatillon, which specialises in revamping 20th-century buildings, and paint restorer Marie-Odile Hubert, who ensured that walls were recoloured in hues as close as possible to Le Corbusier’s original palette.
Italian furniture brand Cassina were also charged with restoring the apartment’s furniture and the cow hide rug that features in the sitting area next to a black leather edition of Le Corbusier’s signature LC2 lounge chair.

The Paris apartment within the Immeuble Molitor, where Le Corbusier lived for over three decades, has reopened its doors to the public, following two years of restoration works led by the Fondation Le Corbusier.

The apartment is located along rue Nungesser-et-Coli in Paris’ 16th arrondissement, and was home to Le Corbusier, along with his wife Yvonne, housekeeper and pet dog Pinceau, between 1934 and 1965.
