About the Project
The community center for the small village of rinatya was tailored to their specific needs and tight budget
The village members desired a pleasant meeting hall, that would fit a variety of activities.
Visitors are welcomed by a unique entrance façade covered in metal plates and supported by 10 posts, the entrance hall serves as a gathering spot and is separated from the main building with a glass strip.
A mesh of squared windows, framed with simple iron decorated the elongated side facades of the building. The windows connect the inside with the outside, and at night, they create a unique grid of lights, a landmark sight in the small village.
The window grid is inspired by the international style and the brutalist architecture of the 50’s and 60’s, a time when fascinating facades were built in low budgets.
The hall can seat 300 people, but has no permanent furnishing to maximize flexibility for different activities.
