Over the years, the firm has established itself as one of the leading firms in the field of urban renewal in Tel Aviv and Jaffa.
In a long series of conservation works, additions to the building, and the integration of new construction into existing fabric, the Ministry has created
an architectural volume whose impression of the city is evident, and can be seen as a delicate weaving work that combines the clarification of the city's architectural history with its periods and styles. And the future of urban space.
The encounter between the old and the new was conducted using various strategies - from assimilation into an existing language, to emphasizing differences in the periods of contrast and acceptance. The common denominator is a relationship of love and respect for the aging cultural assets of the city, and their return to the circle of life, reflecting the past and adapting it to the needs of the present. Among the most prominent works of the firm in the field of urban renewal are residential buildings on 3 Strauss St., 79-81 Rothschild St., 4 Ein-Vered St., 7 Feuerberg St., 23 Geula St., 7 Engel Street and HaNeviim Street 26 and many other buildings Are in various stages of construction, such as 84 Ahad Ha'am Street, 85 Rothschild Blvd.

The range of new projects combines new border exploration and constant examination of the language of architectural design. Among the prominent buildings are the residential building at 14 Najara Street, which recently won the design award, the residential building at 3 Ramat Hasharon and the office building at 32 HaMasger Street.

Among the bridges planned by the firm are the Wachop Bridge, the Exhibition Bridge, the new Maccabiah Bridge, which were awarded the design award, and the recently renovated Ridnig Bridge, which is a focal point in the development of the promenade and the North Beach

Among the projects you can see the judges tower, a residential building on Antokolsky Street, the Jerusalem Hotel, the Jaffa Quarter complex, and Kfar Malchlimim at the Technion in Haifa. There are many other projects in the planning stages, such as the Hassan Arafa compound, the Levontin complex (the Phoenix House), and the Lev Levontin (contractor's house) project.
