Home Away From Home: Norman Tel Aviv Hotel
In the White City of Tel Aviv, a UNESCO World Heritage site, a 1925 Bauhaus residence by Leon Adler and a 1924 Renaissance-style one by Moshe Cherner have combined to become the Norman Tel Aviv, a boutique hotel opening in September. Yoav Messer Architects handled the conversion, restoring much period detail while yielding 50 guest rooms and suites, four restaurants, and a rooftop pool. Design firm Sagrada embued the interiors with Mediterranean flair. Some 150 artworks are hung throughout, all by contemporary Israeli artists.
