Spaces were designed according to the team's values of clean but not sterile architecture, conveying liveliness and creativity, stimulation and surprise that together materialize into a unique habitat.
The harmony created via the spatial transparency and combination of materials, encourages human and professional interaction. The office space serves as an incarnation of the office offering, prominently displaying a statue of a woman pregnant with a child, reminding all of us as designers that the human entity is at the core of every creation.
This project covers over approximately 7325 m2 of complex topographical land, adjacent to Route 6, in a strategic location near Haifa and Israel's center. The office has begun work on preliminary sketches, which take into consideration the mountainous area and green landscape, as well as the existing construction on site. The goal is to create an interesting morphological structure, which can serve in the future as a designated facility for an end-customer, whose needs combine research and development areas, storage space and offices.
The building was awarded the title of 'most beautiful industrial building in Petah Tikva'. It combines two high warehouse floors with access for loading and unloading cargo through the front and back yard bays, and offices on the upper floor. The double-space entrance lobby leads to the main hall of the office floor, its whole length illuminated by a skylight. The offices area is adorned with four patios, enabling deep natural light in the inner part of the building. The building's coating is made of granulite with white Carrera stone and turquoise aluminum.
This building combines entrepreneurship, architectural planning and interior design.
A residential house adjacent to a picturesque alley and bordering a designated park area, which will be created in the wadi. The house ascends to views of the neighborhood, the Mediterranean Sea and Old Jaffa.
The architectural language selected aimed at building a contemporary house, yet designing a building that would reflect the spirit of the neighborhood. This was achieved by breaking down the large mass to create two main levels: at the front - salient elements typical to Neve Zedek, such as plaster walls, wooden shutters, iron railings and balconies that hover over the back 'modern' level - characterized by glass and iron walls.

An entrepreneurial project, initiated in 2006. The purpose of the property was changed from industrial to residential and commercial. The project is located near Lake Mälaren, 3 kilometers from the charming vacation town Mariefred and 40 minutes drive from Stockholm.
The project includes about 120 residential units, commercial areas and public facilities. The units compound includes detached, semi-detached, attached and high rise apartments (about five stories high) and lower, 'marina' style constructions by the lakeside.
The inspiration to planning and designing the offices for a firm offering importing and marketing services for multi national pharmaceutical companies came from the company's core values - structure alongside originality, innovation and an enjoyable working environment. This was achieved via an orthogonal geometry contrasted at times, as well as by defining thematic spaces using unique combinations of colors, materials and lighting.
The company is in the business of medical device, and its offices are adjacent to a logistics warehouse. An elegant and modern ambiance was created using a variety of colors, complemented by black carpentry and floor tiles as well as metal elements evident in the logo, the iron work, windows and curtains.
The selected art and decorative pieces complete the design.
The company is a provider of distribution and logistics services for clinical trials, and its offices are located adjacent to the distribution warehouse. In order to overcome the lack of natural daylight and to create a lively work environment, strong colors were used as well as natural materials and numerous internal windows. Complementing the design and adding another dimension are the artistic sculptures by the sculptress Razia Gershon.
The offices were designed for a high-tech company developing software for the health industry. Work spaces are spread along the lines of the outer shell for natural daylight and privacy. Spaces flow into the central area which includes the reception and waiting area, for creating privacy at work, alongside employee interaction.
The blending of warmer and cooler colors, as well as usage of wood and metal with attention to various lighting schemes, form a creative work environment.
As this Logistics center in the industrial area of the city of Modi'in is being built, it is planned so that it fits the needs of the customers, companies in the medical distribution business. The structure includes approximately 10,750 m2 of storage space and 2,000 m2 of office space.
The gallery offices above the warehouse level were planned so that eye contact is maintained between the various departments and the storage area in order to achieve a sense of belonging and unity with the logistics company.
Common spaces, such as a main meeting room, training room and coffee corner were designed in a dynamic geometry, contrasting with the structural design of the various departments.
The top floor of the penthouse includes a large entertainment space and generous roof deck, an open kitchen, a guest bathroom, master bedroom and service area. The entertainment space is divided into several zones, for viewing the TV and projector, and for formal and informal hosting. A large glass table serves as a divider between the kitchen and entertainment area, at the center of which floats a large island-like sofa which offers 360 degrees of seating. The apartment serves as a type of ‘glass box’ above which floats a slanted, tiled roof. It is surrounded by generous outdoor decking with a minimalist ‘Zen’ feel which includes a water feature, Koi pond, a Bonsai olive tree, brass sculptures and small pebbles both on the deck and within the apartment.
The lower floor which offers a self enclosed living unit, boasts an entertainment space, two bedroom suites and a number of balconies.

A residential apartment in Tel Aviv for a family of four (a couple and two children). The original design of the apartment made it too crowded and a more spacious layout was required. This was achieved by a diagonal wall (which generated an interesting dynamics and created a separation between private and common areas), the blending of areas whithin the common space and the integration of inner-outer spaces. For creating a lively, modern and colorful environment, the design language selected employed rich colors and materials. The same language, but with a different blend of the colors and materials according to residents and functionality, was used to create harmony between the common and private areas.
An urban apartment with a view of the city of Tel Aviv. The apartment is designed in clean lines with contrasts and interest created in the space via usage of 'warm materials' such as sand colored marble, used red brick and wood, alongside 'cooler materials' such as stainless steel, glass, grey vega plaster coating, white walls and carpentry work on large areas.
The spaces were 'tailor made' according to the client's requirements.
In this project, a small ground floor apartment that was dark and neglected was transformed into a young 'loft styled' apartment openning to a garden. It is one open and lit space which combines living, office, sleeping and cooking functions. Our entrepreneurial vision in this project is to leverage this kind of planning and design and apply it to additional structures, such as warehouses and industrial workshops, creating affordable living spaces for hip young people.
'Ot Haitzuv' is a design competition which concludes with an exhibition, showcasing leading architects and designers in Israel. In the first phase of the competition 3 projects were presented (our offices, Ramat Aviv penthouse and offices in a tower building, Petah Tikva). The work presented reflected the spirit behind each project. All three projects were selected for presentation at the exhibition in Tel-Aviv, which showcased the top (150 out of over a 1000 projects) candidates that applied and passed the first phase.
Later on, we were selected, together with 70 other architects and designers, to present at the Israeli Conference for Architecture and Design 2010, held in 'Heichal Hatarbut' in Tel-Aviv, in our company's pavilion. The pavilion concept was to present our studio as a ThinkSpace, a space where new spaces are conceived, showcasing the various projects on four combined screens using a dynamic presentation. It was important for us to convey our values of clean lines, surprising, dynamic and innovative architecture, together with our use of advanced technologies.
We are participating at the Haifa City Square Competition together with Impact Architects. In this competition, our goal is to convey our vision of urban renewal.
