The project started with an urban planning design for a residential tower, and Creation of open green areas for the public. The project is located at the end of Jerusalem road in ramat gan, at the junction with hazon-ish st. The neighborhood Is typically a mix of residential 4-floor buildings, towers (merom-naveh), public Buildings and a cemetery. An 18-floor tower design was planned, consisting of 77 Apartments. Five apartments per floor were required, in order to exploit the Potential building rights fully. To avoid the congestion likely in a floor with 5 Apartments, the apartments were designed around an internal patio space, Which increased the perimeter of the building. Around the patio, a corridor that Leads to the door of each apartment allows privacy but permits interaction Between the building residents. Special attention was given to aspects such As ventilation, light and other parameters in the shared areas of the building. Double-height openings were designed on every three floors, to give lighting And ventilation to the patio. As a result, 8 duplex garden apartments were Incorporated in the center of the building, in addition to 5 penthouse apartments On the top floor. A public garden traverses the columned ground floor of The patio. A glass skylight covers the patio on the 18th floor. The baranovitch Industrialized construction method was employed throughout the building, with A modular mode repeated around the patio.

The design principle - a patio, extending to the full height of the building, creating An internal landscaped space with attention to ecological and social aspects.

The economic principle - the tower is built with a standard industrial construction Method. Thirteen of the 77 apartments are built to luxury design standards, giving Them an added price value.
