Good architecture creates places while in turn enhancing the quality of people's lives. At Auerbach Halevy, we believe in the power of sustainable and inspiring projects that promote positive changes in the lives of the people who inhabit our spaces. Over the years, Auerbach Halevy has been designing innovative, award winning projects for a wide variety of clients within Israel as well as abroad.
Founded in 2000 by Ori Halevy (Architect) and Daphna Auerbach-Biran (Engineer), the combined synergy of architecture and engineering evolved from the desire to bridge the gap between conceptual design and the disciplines of construction. Joining AHA in 2014 Ori Rotem (Rittenberg) continues our combined efforts of creating a design process that merges abstract materials such as light and space with the physical requirements of buildability, calculations, building materials, systems, budgets, and schedules.
We are continually inspired and excited by the promise of projects that start as a conceptual idea and end as a functional built inhabitable place. We strive to be a leading design and planning studio through the innovation and adaptation of new technologies as well as the creation of inspirational spaces and healthy work environments. We believe strongly in a level of high quality service that is achieved by the personal involvement of the partners in each and every project.
Auerbach Halevy is recognized as a member of the Israeli Green Building Council (ILGBC), as well as holds an ISO 9001-2015 certification. In addition, we are the proud owners of an exceptional coffee machine.
About the Studio
We are a team comprised of architects, interior designers, urban planners, and engineers, who approach each project, whether small or large, with the same enthusiasm as if it was our first. Our team of almost 50 experienced professionals has broad knowledge in leading complex projects of all types, including but not limited to: residential, commercial, offices, industrial, interiors and logistics. Local or International, our projects are as close as Tel Aviv, or as far as Sydney, San Jose, and Singapore.
Auerbach Halevy is our extended family and we strongly believe that our success is due to the pool of talented designers in the firm. We are devoted to each other as much as we are committed to our projects. Each year, we take the time to travel together for a few days to enjoy a blend of good architecture, nature, and maybe a few drinks in inspiring destinations around the world.
Our philosophy can be summarized in one word: collaboration.
The continued success of our projects is a direct result of our passionate, collaborative approach. We believe strongly in a process of constant learning, partnering with our clients to understand their culture and needs to ultimately realize their vision. Although there are many variables which influence and inform the direction of our projects (site, budget, user, program, and culture), through a rigorous design process we are able to find the hidden potential that result in inspiring, detail-oriented, signature projects.
1. Research: rigorous analyzation of the site, client brief and program that lead to a one-off, unique architectural solution – the reason why no two of our projects are alike.
2. Knowledge: we are constantly learning from and sharing our knowledge/experience with our peers (clients, consultants, architects, and other professionals)
3. Coordination: the seamless management of our design teams is essential to creating high quality, functional projects from concept to completion.
4. Construction Documentation: we believe that architects must know how to realize and produce their ideas in the "real world". We are very proud of the high level detailed, buildable drawings and specifications we produce.
Our Methodology – Total Design
We believe that the Architect should lead the design team. The responsibility of establishing design goals, coordination and guidance with the various consultants is the primary role of the Architect.
Therefore the architect leads and supervises the entire design team, which ensures the client a high-level of professionalism as well as the adherence to the given schedule and budget.
As needed, an experienced project manager, who works alongside the architect is tasked with managing the various consultants. Reporting back to the client on the overall design and construction process.
Our consultants are selected from a small group of highly ly-qualified professionals who have been tested and vetted through our mutual work. Through these lasting connections, the project never fails to bring us the results we want through a timely and coordinated process at no extra cost to the client.
