Our winning entry for an architectural competition held in 2022 to design Ramat Yir'on Regional center for Upper Galilee Regional Council's mountain settlements, near Kibbutz Yir'on.
The campus consists of a 24CR classroom innovative elementary school, a medium-type sports hall, and adjacent facilities such as a transportation hub, an athletics compound, an open air theater, as well as roads and infrastructures.
The built scheme relates to the specific communal and educational programme set by the municipality, articulating an hierarchical spatial array - both of external and internal spaces. The overall deign responds to the significant topography and agricultural nature of the plot, primarily setting it's volumetric juxtaposition below the horizon as it is conceived from the upper northern part of the site.
The elementary school was selected to participate in the coming program for innovative schools by the Ministry of Education, following innovative pedagogic principals and approach, to be guided in accordance to LEED regulations and principals
