A new City Hall and Culture Hub, IL | 2011
The new municipality building of Netanya, located in the old part of the city,between the local market, Herzel Street and municipal cultural institutions,introduces a new public park for the city – A Green Heart – that gradually transforms from a horizontal landscape to a vertical climatic structure projecting; openness, advancement and beauty to the whole city.
A unique focal point at the end of Herzel Street, the Complex’s green public qualities and its contemporary mix of leisure, culture and municipal services will help not only regenerating the city’s old centre but also complementing and defining Netanya’s future Identity.
A city hall is an operational complex that serves the people of the city, and at the same time encapsulates the city’s identity.
The Netanya city hall is therefore organized as an interweaved structure of public and municipal programs, avoiding hierarchical perception and giving rise to spatial organization that reflects transparency, environmental responsibility, comfort and efficiency.
