Our proposal for the new Regional Council of Building of the District of Judea is based on a balance between our desire to insert a modest intervention in the landscape and a need to design a public building with a substantial formal presence. The relatively large lot (almost 20 dunam) and the modest program, led us to divide the areas into three building masses: a formal “cube” at the upper road with two wings at the lower road, embracing a public plaza.

The Gran Mediterraneo is an innovative concept of High-Rise that integrates a public automated car-park, operates as the first induction charging station for public and shared electric driverless vehicles in the city (future ‘sherut’), and mixes programs of vertical living: residential apartments and hotel, bars and restaurants, farming and public gardens, swimming pools and dead sea spas, co-working spaces for offices and start-ups, educational and events spaces. Innovative also with its topological geometry giving a spiral effect to the high-rise, the Gran Mediterraneo breaks with the global and usual stacking of horizontal slabs wrapped with mirrored glass, aiming to renew Tel Aviv skyline with a ‘Unesco proclaimed white city’ specific vertical architecture. To be built with white concrete, using the latest construction and digital technologies, the curvy high-rise is filled with mediterranean and dead sea natures.

The connections system, between the exterior and the interior as well as the different areas of the house, was at the core of the plan designed by architects Hila and Danny Israelevitz for a house in Savyon, Israel. The result: a house to be discovered, which is not read at once but in stages, while creating a discovery experience, changing interests and sensations.
The owners of the house, which is located in Savyon, came to architects Hila and Dan Israelevitz with a reasonably standard program, with no wild whimsies – all they wanted was a modern house which is open to the outside, functional and convenient for everyday conduct, and suitable for their lifestyle as a family with three children. The chemistry was immediate, and so was the first sketch by architects Israelevitz, which was, actually, the only sketch. “The house owners’ wishes were in line with our concept that the house needs to first and foremost be used suitably for those living in it, and that was the purpose. To create a house which fills the needs of its inhabitants, and at the same time creates and highlights feelings beyond any aspect of time, fashion, or architecture alone”.

At the onset of this project, when we asked the clients what type of house they were interested in, they replied “a simple house, like a lifeguard tower”.
We designed a one story house spread across a corner lot. Two layers of exposed concrete comprise floor and ceiling with white stucco walls enveloping the house. Sliding the upper plane forward allowed for light penetration at the core of the house as well as air circulation. Between the two layers lies a rectangular tube, separating while connecting inside form out. This unique space houses an entry corridor and art studio.

Situated on an extremely narrow site with eucalyptus trees along its southern & eastern edge, Gottesman-Szmelcman Architecture’s design of the Faculties of Psychology & Economics Building at the Interdisciplinary Center Herzliya (IDC) reflects several key considerations: a commitment to “green” architecture; a desire to create clear and dynamic relationships between architecture and its surrounding; and a commitment to effectively and harmoniously incorporate carefully defined functions within each building.

The creation of two dividable public areas was the foundation of planning this family apartment in central Tel Aviv. The apartment was extended and lengthened, with a large space connecting between the existing and new spaces creating a new large public area in the apartment. The apartment size is 165sqm.

This cinema complex was designed and built in an existing parking building. Located in the city of Jerusalem, The process of the design met different types of challenges. The first challenge was to design a complex that was located near the supreme court of justice and the government official buildings. Planning the complex, which represent entertainment and leisure activities, within a governmental neighborhood was a big challenge. The second challenge was to implement the project with the limitation of an existing structural building. The commercial space level was designed on the roof of the building, and all the cinema rooms were designed under the street level, however in a spacious and dramatic way incorporating large spaces and different colors. There are 15 cinema halls in the projects.
