Pisgat Shlomi Project, Beer Sheva (1995)
The project of Pisgat Shlomi in Beer Sheva includes 44 dwelling units, of 3, 4 and 5 rooms each. Our challenge was in combining the old urban plan of our plot with new marketing standards. The urban plan demanded row houses, while in contemporary buildings all four facades are open and ventilated. As a solution, we proposed three modern and airy buildings connected by beams. The proposal answered the requirements of the urban plan, and eventually was approved by the Municipality and the Ministry of Housing.
This generated the design language of the buildings. The connecting beams and their supporting columns are light and perforated, creating a lacelike veil over the monolithic buildings.
