We have submitted two different proposals for a student’s housing buildings. Each proposal offers a different interpretation for a building that is designated for young, vibrant audience with lively community life. We were very proud to discover that our plans received both first and second prize in a creative contest run by the Israeli Architects Association.

Proposal A

The proposal sets an alternative for the typical housing solutions and offers a model for community life in a vertical structure. The structure clusters residential units around common public spaces, which creates a living environment suitable for the students’ lifestyle. The concept is implemented using a reinforced concrete structure, which is simple and quick to execute, economical and yet has a strong presence, serving as a foundation for placing residential units and creating adjoining public spaces. The reinforced concrete structure creates “double-slab” stories, where separate housing units built of light materials can be placed and arranged in two different levels and variating overlaps, creating well-lit airy spaces. The colorful residential unit modules, placed playfully on the concrete skeleton are vivid, eye catching and create distinction between the different units. Flexible, coincidental urban spaces, representing streets and piazzas where everyday life happens. The building rooftop serves as an open public space overlooking the breathtaking view of Haifa Bay.
