City Center, Hadera

Commissioned Hadera Municipality
Scope Approximately 50 acres
Status Implemented, 1998-2003

The project constitutes a part of an overall effort to transform Hadera's main street, Herbert Samuel . The plan included essential diversions of traffic, in the framework of which two cul-de-sacs were connected into a two-way street. The street section was planned to create a combined urban space, offering various activities and an advantage to pedestrians. The public space includes a new square that blends shaded sitting corners with small commercial spaces for the enrichment of urban life. At the same time, principles were developed for the renovation of the buildings and for the additions of roofing and shading to the street's shops.

The project was planned in cooperation with landscape architect Pete Lederer.
