The increase in demand for commercial areas in Hezliya’s industrial zone, alongside the need to expand current housing solutions in the area.
To establish a central component located on the main entrance axis of the area, which will complete the missing western link. Providing a housing solution for the compound’s workers, eliminating their reliance on private transportation to the workplace.
Two 40-story towers were designed according to the updated urban masterplan for Herzliya.
The ground floors are intended for commercial activities, the floors directly above them are for offices and other businesses, and the upper floors are residential and composed mainly of small living units.
The main challenge we faced was to plan and execute construction while taking into maximum consideration the tenants currently residing in the building located on the construction site. In order to execute this plan correctly, we divided construction into two consecutive, vertical stages – the first tower will be built to the west of the existing building, and tenants will move from the old to the new building immediately upon its completion; then, the existing building will be demolished and the second tower built to the east of the street.
The two towers are connected by a central space, while the external shell “peels” spiraly and reveals the subtle construction of the inner shell.
