Project No. 1 – High Dynamics
The corona period emphasizes to us that in crowded environments the public space is in short supply, and our desire for space is only growing. The options that the nearest space offers us are limited and when there are limitations of distance from home there is a lack of variety, especially when needed. The project offers a solution of dynamic functions that allow movement, diversity, and modification of the new public space. This is a dynamic level that aims to generate interest and diversity for the residents of the neighborhood, thereby spreading the load between the two public levels that operate in parallel and complement each other. There are many combinations made possible by the surface dynamics that create diversity and allow you to enjoy a new space every day. The combinations are almost unlimited and with them a top level is created which all the functions we would like to enjoy during our agenda are close to home.
Project No. 2 – LESS IS MORE
The project advocates the preservation of social values based on uniformity for equality works, through social interactions and common public areas. The project began with research on the city of Tel Aviv and its existing contrasts. “For the purpose of the examination, we studied two different areas in terms of socioeconomic, architectural, social and cultural. We took the White City and Yad Eliyahu as a case study to understand the issues mentioned earlier. After examining the two cases of scrutiny and insights from what is currently being preserved, we decided to engage in the preservation of not only buildings but also in the preservation of everyday landscapes that express the preservation of large layers of Israeli society,” explains Amar and Ashkenazi.
The purpose of the project is to enable multiple open spaces to enable social interactions between the building’s occupants. The project is a 3-story building, the first floor is an intrusive pillared floor and another 2 residential floors, a total of 4 apartments. The height of the floors is the same, and the apartments are arranged symmetrically, identical, and uniform, with the internal division simple and standard suitable for a variety of people. For each floor they created balconies shared by apartments that allow social gatherings and mutual guarantee. “We have created a structure based on the characteristics that we have learned in both the White City and Elijah’s hand of cheap, uniform and simple and accessible construction, with the purpose of the building as much as possible to enable social interactions, mutual guarantee and partnership between the residents.” concludes Amar and Ashkenazi.
