A project funded by the city of , the abandoned Riviera nightclub on the beach of , south of Tel-Aviv, has been turned into a seaside art gallery and artist colony. Designed by Derman Verbakel Architecture, the 1,200 square meter grid of concrete columns and beams, which had been the décor for a lively night scene in 1950s and 60s, was reconverted within only a few weeks last summer. This project then became a space for artists to live and create on-site art inside and outside the gallery. More images and architects’ description after the break.

We just recieved this very interesting project from Derman Verbakel Architecture. “On the way to the sea”, located in the city of Bat-Yam, , transforms the space that lies between the city and the sea to a place of its own rather than an in-between passage.
