Location I Ashkelon, old city center

Area I 310 sqm

Status I undergoing municipal approval process

The building is located in a pedestrian alley in the heart of the old city center of Ashkelon. The lot has no building constraints in regards to distance from its edge. this small building is designed to have one store in its ground floor, and above it 4 floors with a space to be used for one or two offices in each.

The design was conceptualized through a process of mapping the area. The map presents the area through its main characteristics - social accessibility, visual accessibility and sound.

Using these same characteristics and the same graphic tool of mapping we defined the design.
