Beit-Halochem

Kimmel Eshkolot Arch. as Architects

The outskirts of beer sheva, where the city ends and the desert begins, is where the new "Beit-Halochem" rehabilitation center is built. Desert sun and arid scenery served us as a source of inspiration to design a composition of rock-like volumes that are grouped together.The "rocks" accommodates intimate and quite functions, while the negative space between them creates gathering areas, and define the circulation in the building.The alignment of these rocks combined with the thin horizontal roof which hovers between them, creates an inviting and protected courtyard. The fierce desert sun-light, which bounces on minor dents on the surface of the rock, creates an ever-changing appearance for the new IDF veterans home.
