Mixed Use development, Israel, 2015-2016
D-Tower Ranana is a new mixed use development located in the heart of Ranana’s knowledge industry hub.
The tower caters for a growing Technology/Bio-med community in Raanana and provides a "beating heart" for the area with a 24/7 layered development of Work & Live & Play facilities.
Spanning over 25 floors and over 30,000m2 the new tower weaves together programmatic needs - from retail in ground floors, hotel in lower floors and offices in the higher floors to a new members-club for both offices and hotel users on the top floors.
While the office floors are based on a flexible yet repetitive layout accommodating various tenancy scenarios and an efficient core arrangement, the introduction of cascading balconies allow the development of a dynamic green spine along the full height of the building and achieve a playful relationship between the balconies outlines and the vertical curtain wall facade. Horizontal Fines along the facade as well as jigsaw facade shutters are guided by natural ventilation and solar shading simulations.
