Jacobs -Yaniv Architects is a leading Israeli design practice with considerable project running experience and a portfolio which includes high end houses and apartments, residential building, commercial spaces and public projects. The practice also specializes in ‘one stop shop’ service for overseas clients wishing to build a holiday home or a temporary residence in Israel.
Jacobs-Yaniv Architects was founded in 2004. Practice founders Tamar Jacobs and Oshri Yaniv returned to Israel having spent a decade living and working in London: graduating from the Architectural Association school of Architecture and working for some of the world’s leading architects – Zaha Hadid, David Chipperfield and Wilkinson Eyre Architects.
Each and every project is meticulously thought through, with great care and attention to design, the client’s requirements and the site conditions. Both founding partners are personally involved in every project to ensure continuity from the initial sketches and ideas, through planning permission to the construction phase on site.
Jacobs-Yaniv Architects always aim for aesthetic functional space based on clear design ideas. There is a constant search for exciting, interesting and intriguing architecture.
The work of the practice has been published locally and worldwide and has been the recipient of various awards
