The exposed concrete structure for the high-tech green house in Katzerin is set in the midst of wild bush. The two stories building is overlooking the sea of Galilee allows for a moderate transformation from the edge of the industrial area into the untamed nature at it’s front.

Two separate entrances – each one at a different level and opposite facade divides the building into two completely separate floors occupied by different companies. A central court yard connects the two floors by offering a hidden garden as the heart of the project. Despite the extreme low-budget ($700 per square meter) the careful design prevents the compromising of architectural qualities.

    The inside garden lintels with their shadows, seems quite delightful. Is a nice work with concrete.
