Alon Towers project is situated in the center of Bitzaron neighborhood in Tel Aviv, on Yigal Alon street. On site are two office towers with 45 floors each on top of commercial ground floor and a lower public building which currently accommodates the “Tmuna” theater.

Responsibilities
I managed the project from the conceptual design through to detailed design and in-situ supervision. My responsibilities included client liaison and design coordination across the disciplines, as well as preparation of ballparks, permit applications, BOQs, tenders, construction and specification documents.

Working out the concept
Yigal Alon’s business high street runs along the Ayalon River. Although not perceived as a stream today (channeled), the river dictates the urban development around it. The master plan for the Bitzaron neighborhood uses the water and flow motives as a design generator.

When I thought of the thousands of people who are to visit the new “Alon Towers” business center every day, I imagined masses of busy, rushing people, a rhythmic movement, full of the intensity of contemporary life. I wanted to create a space for them that would feel the opposite. A peaceful, serene environment that gives you the opportunity to stop and take a breath of air. I could not ask for a better inspiration than a lazily flowing water stream.
It’s all about the Details
For the clean and serene look I wished to create, the precision and accuracy of the lines were of utmost importance. The collaboration of the advising engineers and the cooperation of the construction team deserves the most praise throughout the project.

Using the same materials and continuity of lines from the ground floor allow the open terraces and patios of levels three and four to come together as puzzle pieces when viewed from the upper floors.

The new common language will be more simple and regular than the existing European languages. It will be as simple as Occidental; in fact, it will be Occidental. To an English person, it will seem like simplified English, as a skeptical Cambridge friend of mine told me what Occidental is. The European languages are members of the same family.
