5,000 sqm, 124 rooms, under construction 2015, Aristobolus street Jerusalem, for Ginot Halachim ltd.
A city block that was only half built left a small plot hidden behind the Jaffa Street façade in downtown Jerusalem. Frumkin street, a short but beautiful street, leads to the center of the plot, and at its northeastern edge is a small piazza, which is like a small urban room full of delight. The proposed building completes the space of the small city square and the alleys that lead to. The main entrance to the building is opposite Frumkin street.
The form of the building is a clean and light stone box that seems to float upon three more traditional stone blocks, such that Frumkin street is allowed to continue and pass through the building to its other side. The façade of the floating box is pushed out on the southern side in order to bring attention to the more traditional base on which it sits.
