  • Maintaining reciprocal connections between the different functions.

  • Creation of the heart of the camp is set by a central square enclosed by walls of the main public buildings: dining rooms, clubs, sales center, auditorium, clinic, synagogue.

  • Maximum separation of maintenance and supply areas from the rest of the areas.

  • Reduction in operating costs due to correct placement of buildings.

  • Reducing Length of infrastructure and reducing walking distances.

  • Reducing the number of buildings and consolidating some of them to blocks thereby reducing the land cover and walking distances
