Following the national increase in the average life span, the need arose to accommodate senior citizens in protected environments which would also provide them with a sense of community. Specifically, an acute demand for retirement centers was felt in the eastern Sharon area.
The building consists of different residential units, a sports club, a swimming pool, medical unit, nursing unit, appointed rooms (physiotherapy, group activity etc.), kitchen and cafeteria, leisure areas, synagogue, hairdressing salon, storage, offices and sheltered areas.
For the comfort of the tenants, each residential unit is composed of a private area, common area, kitchenette, washing room and terrace. The units differ in size, and are designed either for singles or couples.
Units on the lower floors are arranged in four wings, meeting at the center point. The upper floors are divided into two wings meeting at the center. Passages on each floor are located along the units and in between them, in order to provide best access.
Service and public areas are located on the ground floor and two of the lower floors.
The main entrance at the ground level is followed by an external passage and a square, which functions as a public lobby area.
The complex is tile roofed and stone clad in order to visually harmonize with the adjacent neighborhood.
