B/2, Beitar Ilit

Commissioned Ministry of Housing and Construction
Scope 3,300 housing units, 1,115 acres
Status Under implementation, 1998-2013
Description

The project constitutes a part of the overall plan for the town of Beitar Ilit. The plot for construction is an elongated mountain extension, with major inclines of up to 50%. Construction models were developed to suit the challenging topography and the target population. The "textural" construction yielded a skeleton of urban streets, roundabouts and public spaces - all contributing to the area's unique character.

A central urban boulevard is located on the watershed line, and allows accessibility to all parts of the neighborhood.
