The project is the first stage of the regeneration of Jerusalem's city hall district and its municipal square. We recently won the competition for the district's masterplan and start realizing it by adding a city hall office building, adjacent to the historic Beit Avihail (built in 1863). The ground floor of the historic building is going to be excavated to merge with the square level, presenting an active commercial façade and becoming a focal point of the municipal square. The two upper floors above will be refurbished as office areas. The new office building's entrance level will be connected to the ground floor's facilities of the historic building. The seven -story new structure will be cladded by a weave of relieved stone plates incorporated in vertical windows, presenting a contemporary interpretation to the traditionally stone buildings of Jerusalem.
