'Hagosh Hagadol' Neighborhood
"Hagosh Hagadol" neighborhood, in northern Tel-Aviv is a project which our office accompanies since the 80's; Starting from the master-plan, through design plans and in the last few years, development of streets and public open spaces in the neighborhood.
The streets design is being done according to the standard details of Tel-Aviv city council, but with adjustments to the special needs In different streets. For example in Einstein street, an urban main street, with a central boulevard, will be gardened and in the future will serve the light rail system. In Bashevis Singer Street the standard details were adjusted according to its proximity to the "green" school, and special materials and vegetation which emphasize this subject were used.
In places where design flexibility was needed, such as the public open spaces and choosing the trees and vegetation, there was a special emphasis on water efficiency and using runoff water as well as consideration of the unique site – the proximity to the beach and the sandstone ridges.
