Kimmel Eshkolot Architects has won the competition to design the Kaplan North Masterplan, covering an area of 32,000 square meters in central Tel Aviv. Once a secretive and secluded area, the space has been opened to new development due to the decision to relocate the headquarters of the IDF.

“Located between one of the city’s busiest intersections and its cultural center, the design creates a new gateway to Tel Aviv, which will be an innovative series of structures that will connect this fragmented area,” with the goal of creating a “sustainable coexistence between a busy urban space and an intimate residential neighborhood.”

Ron Arad Architects will soon break ground on Beit Shulamit (or “Shulamit House"), a new cancer centre for the Emek Medical Centre in Afula – a regional hospital campus in the north of Israel. Designed to be "an inviting and unthreatening intervention within the hospital context," the center will be situated east of the main campus’ perimeter road within the foothills of the nearby Giv’at Hamoré mountain.

"The three-story building is arranged upon a generous new ground level deck, which rests over two covered car parking levels," says the architects. "The Centre’s three upper floors step down towards the South, to create a terraced arrangement in keeping with the site’s topography. This enhances both the views out of all parts of the building towards the natural environment, and offers a variety of indoor/outdoor spaces for circulation and reflection."
