053 | Herzeliya house

The house was designed for a family with two grown children at the end of a wooded Cul-de-Sac. The neighborhood is dominated by large, introverted houses, but thanks to the unique location of the lot we were able to design a house that can “raise its head” over the...

044 | Bnei-Dror house

The street facade is modest and lower than the adjacent houses, and the lofty, one-and-a-half storey high interior is unexpectedly revealed only when entering the house. The exposed concrete ceiling floats 60 centineters above the peripheral...

The house’s form fully exploits the local building codes. The east facade, overlooking the adjacent building, is windowless. All the public areas and bedrooms open either to the west – towards the sea view, or to the north – towards the garden and swimming pool

National Library competition, Jerusalem

Honorary Mention. Collaboration with Keinan Architects, Dori Sadan and Ruti Orev

The proposal aims at creating a dialogue between the structure and its urban surroundings. A public plaza opening to the south functions as a “breathing” urban space, and opens towards the urban and natural landscape to the south. A bridge across Rupin blvd. leads to the library’s plaza and...
