Timber screens divide up Tel Aviv restaurant L28 by Kimmel Eshkolot Architects

Suspended timber screens and vertical vegetation feature in this Tel Aviv restaurant interior by Israeli architecture office Kimmel Eshkolot Architects.

Named L28 after its location on the city's lively Lilienblum Street, the restaurant's spacious interior is divided up by timber panels to clearly define its various functions.

Kimmel Eshkolot Architects wanted to use natural and warm materials, such as the slatted wood panels and leather upholstery, within the space. These warmer and more organic elements are contrasted with the smooth resin floor, and the black steel bannister and panelling.

The architects also incorporated a green wall at the back of the restaurant, while a stack of shelves planted with herbs and spice plants is placed in front of the bar and kitchen where the produce is used to make drinks.

An urban farm was developed on the roof of the building that serves the restaurant's farm-to-table setup.

Housed in the Start-Up Nation Central Headquarters, the restaurant will be headed up by a different emerging local chef every six months and the menu will use only locally-sourced ingredients and wine.

The concept is the first of its kind in the country, with the long-term goal of promoting young chefs who would not normally have the opportunity to open their own restaurant.
