Text description provided by the architects. Located in the upscale moshav, or private neighborhood, of Beit Yehoshua north of Tel Aviv, the Shitufim - Zionism2000 campus is the second phase in the realization of a campus dedicated to non-profit organizations concerned with Israel’s civil society.

Designed and completed by Gottesman-Szelcman Architecture in 2009, the 2,000-square-meter public building serves as a conference center and the home of several additional NPO’s that focus on aspects of Israel’s society. With the completion of Shitufim, the western section of the campus is complete and fully operational.

The design of the building is oriented towards public gardens to the east and frame a courtyard on three-sides. A simple rectilinear module defines the rhythm of the spaces with the materiality of the external façade being determined by the quality of the external views. Thus, each rectangle is either glazed or clad with Ipe wood planks creating a haphazard patter that conforms to a clearly defined matrix.
