Andromeda House

Mixed Use
Urban Design

The ancient city of Jaffa, 10 minutes south of Tel Aviv, is a jumble of tightly packed structures that crawl downhill to the Mediterranean. Instead of using streets, pedestrians traverse a labyrinth of stairways that guide them between the houses.  As a result, the differentiation between public and private space is muddled: One is never quite certain whether a passageway will lead up to someone’s front door or into a plaza or public street.  

Central to this is Andromeda, a high-end housing development with views of the Mediterranean, designed by Barlev Architects. The design is guided by a gridded plaza, orienting views toward the sea while directing movement in a perpendicular fashion. The effect of the grid of palms is formal and traditional, recalling garden design from around the Mediterranean basin.  A small garden at the terminus of the plaza with a human-scale chessboard acts as a transition zone between public and private spaces. The design employs a variety of different stone treatments - striated, polished, and cut in myriad ways - that are indicative of Israel’s architecture.

What’s a Rich Text element?

The rich text element allows you to create and format headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, images, and video all in one place instead of having to add and format them individually. Just double-click and easily create content.

Static and dynamic content editing

A rich text element can be used with static or dynamic content. For static content, just drop it into any page and begin editing. For dynamic content, add a rich text field to any collection and then connect a rich text element to that field in the settings panel. Voila!

How to customize formatting for each rich text

Headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, figures, images, and figure captions can all be styled after a class is added to the rich text element using the "When inside of" nested selector system.
