Location: Aba Hillel St.
The natural topographical lines of the sloped site determined the entrance level to the shops and to the synagogue as well as the landscaping levels.
The direction of the paths, the exact location of the
shops and the synagogue on the site, stemmed from a design process that
took place on the site itself, while taking a slow walk from the upper
level of the site to the lower one. This process led to locating the
public square at the lower level and marking the paths according to the
sequence of landmarks overlooking outstanding scenery.
The buildings are of the traditional “ Jerusalem stone”, the inherent properties of which actually dictated the nature of the construction details which created the common language of the neighborhood center.
