Architecture

Utopia, Revisited

Born from the socialist ideas prevalent in 1960s Israel, Ya’akov Rechter’s Brutalist masterpiece, the Mivtachim Sanitarium, is constructed of modular, concrete units that seem to hug the curves of Mount Carmel.

Half a century later, Israeli philanthropist Lily assembled a vanguard team, helmed by architects Ranni Ziss and Amnon Rechter (Ya’akov’s son), who reimagined the structure as a new kind of utopia: a hybrid of hospitality and high art known as the Elma Arts Complex Luxury Hotel.

Interior Design

The Art of Subtlety

When it came to the interiors of the Elma Arts Complex Luxury Hotel, the design team placed Ya’akov Rechter’s vision front and center. Senior interior designer Lea Mahler, whose past accomplishments include work on the King David Hotel in Jerusalem, together with architectural firm Baranowitz & Kronenberg, took care that the interiors would echo the undulating subtlety of its façade.

Terrazzo floor tiles, cement surfaces, and oak highlights exude restrained elegance, while the careful selection of mobile furniture—sofas and benches of white leather, oak and walnut stools, and black, minimalist patio furniture—harmonizes with the building’s clean design.
