Housing Studio - NEVE OFER NEIGHBORHOOD

Arch. Dafna Matok, Arch. Leonardo Klichman. 

In a site located in the outskirts of Tel Aviv, in ‘Neve Ofer’ neighborhood, we were asked to design 80-90 four-bedroom units to accommodate young families.

 

The remote site needs to generate its own urbanity an create some sense of a city in the periphery of Tel Aviv. The building consists of 5 different parts which contribute to a constantly changing scenery that is occurring while strolling to you apartment, creating a sense of motion and vibrant ‘urban block’.

Site

The site is located in the outskirts of Tel Aviv, a relatively small city. The neighborhood in unconnected to the center of the city and it's a home to a lot of low income communities. 

System

In order to create (1) a more heterogeneous environment, as opposed to the  strict and rigid design of everyday circulation systems in our apartment buildings, and (2) therefore creating a sense of urbanity in the outskirts of the city by assembling an “urban block”.T

 

he building is consisted from 4 different parts,, all of them connected by outdoor hallway-bridges. Each part completing or obstructing the other parts, and creating the sequence that will always make the building ‘rearrange’ itself cognitively.
