Netanya

Community Centers

3,000 sq. m. each

Other Projects

The firm has planned and designed two neighborhood community centers located in the south of Netanya. One in Kiryat Hasharon - east of the coastal road and the other in the new neighborhood Ir Yamim- located on the western side of the coastal road and facing the sea. The area of each of the centers is approximately 3,000 square meters.

Design Principles:

  • The building "footprint" creates a square in the façade of the plot.

  • The building itself is built on the meeting between the two axes: One is north - south Green Axis - facing the inner gardens, and the other east - west blue axis - facing the sea and directs the views to it.

  • The two axes divide the building into four sections - three blocks and one block built as a negative. The three blocks are used for three different activity areas – group activity area, dance area and performances area.

  • To each activity area there is a lobby which connects to the main axes.

  • The entrance is central and close to the meeting of the axes while next to it there are ticket office and cafeteria which includes a deck for outdoor reclining.

  • The parking that extends from the south and east of the building is also used by the nearby school and is also used for a loading and unloading of stage equipment.

  • Stage supporting rooms and actors rooms - located next to the stage and at the same level.

  • Auditorium is spread in horseshoe shape while guaranteeing optimal visibility & acoustics.

  • In the planning of building its location near high buildings was taken into account while planning the roofs and equipment on them in a concealed manner (a fifth facade).

  • Building design expresses the various functions of each region, including the two axes (blue and green) which are crossing in a way that you can tell from the outside what is happening inside.
