The project was planned in partnership with architect Yohanan Lavie. The plan was made at the beginning of the nineties in the period of heavy immigration from the USSR . The Bnei Ayish rural village is situated south of Gedera on the road leading to the Kastina - Be'er Sheva junction.

The plan aimed to increase the number of housing units from the existing 280 to 1500. The project is located on 2 main axes: The first, from west to east, leads to the center of the existing village; the second - from the regional road in the north, leads to the center of the plan. At the junction of the two axes, a traffic square is planned, surrounded by high density construction of 5-floor residential buildings, as well as commercial and public uses. The rest of the planned area is zoned for "semi rural" building (about 8 housing units per dunam (1.97 acres)) - garden and roof apartments with private entrances. In parallel to the street grid, a green network of paths is planned for pedestrians and bicycles, connecting the built up area via open squares.
