Keith Flanagan writes in Architectural Digest, “Just barely a century old, Tel Aviv embraces its seaside vibe in more ways than one—equally laid-back and strikingly cutting edge… Perhaps due to its relative youth, Tel Aviv doesn’t always make the list of de facto design-forward destinations—which is why the city is guaranteed to surprise you… Tel Aviv more or less revolves around the coast, where a throng of 13 designated beaches connect opposite ends of the city with contemporary promenades studded with sculptural boardwalks and modern beach cafés. With year-round sunshine, cyclists, windsurfers, and volleyball players alike thrive from sunrise to sunset…. And while Tel Aviv’s burgeoning center has focused on the northern hub, the southern district of Jaffa, an ancient port with architecture to match, is in the midst of its own renaissance after decades of restoration.”
