As a final project at Shenkar College under academic advisor Arch. Yaron Golani, Rotem Guy Workshop has completed Urban Club for Soldiers, a project in Tel Aviv, Israel

Based on the duality of order and movement, the project centers on a large multi-purpose building with its programs spread throughout “like a measuring stick.”

The design is generally modeled after historic “Tel Pach” temporary housing, specifically “Nissen huts,” which were cabins built with steel and rounded tin pegs. The project utilizes simple materials, like steel and tin, as well as mineral plaster and wet masonry.

On the ground floor of the building, an entrance hall leads to an elevated area that hosts a light-filled lobby with a glass ceiling, welcoming station, and computer stations. The space additionally features an all-purpose hall, cafeteria, bathroom, dressing room, and rest cabins.

Classrooms, management, and additional rest cabins are located on the first floor above the ground level.

The strict hierarchy of the building is broken by a hovering bridge, which connects the auditorium and resting area, thereby unifying the spaces throughout the building.
