Bar Kokhba Towers, Bnei Brak
The building is located in Bnei Brak’s newly restored industrial zone near the Ayalon Mall in Ramat Gan.
One of the most important issues highlighted in this project was the construction of a very tall foundation level (approximately 16 m) to facilitate an open, bright, roofed urban space.
Exposing the view, ventilation and air directions to the offices and a ‘ventilated’ façade facing the residential buildings across the street. Despite the building’s dark surface, the materials selected have a high heating element that does not heat up the environment. Open terraces for vegetation and for use by occupants were designed on every few floors.
