Baranowitz Kronenberg have designed The Mandeli Street hotel with the intention to integrate it as a role player within the ecstatic identity of Tel Aviv: a pan-cultural, warm, welcoming, cheeky, blunt and beating 24/7.
The Mandeli Street hotel is infused with Tel-Aviv's personality and perfectly fits to the urban vibes of this Mediterranean city.Open since the late sixties, the Mandeli Street hotel re-opened in November 2013 after a massive renovation and immediately became the hottest hotel in Tel-Aviv.The changeover included a complete interior and exterior renovation (66 rooms), including a totally new identity and branding to position it where it is truly deserved.
Baranowitz Kronenberg have set two initial values to feed on their design: The Orient and the Global, values which they forged and rephrased into "The Glorient" , a thematic approach that runs throughout the building from top to bottom.The ground floor is celebrated by "Five" (a tribute to the number of the building address: 5 Mandeli St.) the newest restaurant by the star chef Raffi Cohen who indulges the city guests with his unique Mediterranean cuisine.
The interiors are a mix of furniture, details, art works which convey the idea of contemporary urbanism, fresh and up-to-date atmosphere: pieces of colorful and modern furniture and limited edition pieces from different Israeli designers. On the back wall of the welcoming desk, the contemporary art of the Israeli street artist "Know Hope" can be admired.
