Beit Halochem – new images + review
The concept of the Israeli Veterans’ building, explained to me by the architect, was five ‘rocks’ in the desert with an overarching roof. Each ‘rock’ is a wing of the building and the intervening spaces are cloaked with a timber-lined soffit. Evaluating the design was hindered by a huge amount of clutter but in general the building seems to work though I found reading the layout from the entry and the foyer slightly difficult, the ‘rocks’ metaphor doesn’t quite work for me.

This Israeli architecture firm was founded in Tel Aviv, Israel in 1986. The design studio was established by architects Etan Kimmel and Michal Kimmel-Eshkolot.
In their first years of practice, they were involved in the preservation and rehabilitation of Neve Tzedek, the historical neighborhood of Tel Aviv. Throughout the years they won several national competitions for the design of high-profile public projects in Israel, such as the new expansion of the government compound (“Kiryat Hamemshala”) in Jerusalem, the Davidson Museum in the Archaeological Park near the Western_Wall and the Memorial Center for Israeli military casualties in Mount Herzl.
In 2011 they won the Rechter Prize for Architecture, considered to be the most prestigious award for architecture in Israel. They received the award for the design of a rehabilitation center for IDF disabled veterans, located in Be’er Sheva. This project was also selected for project of the year in the international competition of the magazine Israeli Architecture.
