National Memorial on Mount Herzl 

By Kimmel Eshkolot Architects

Mount Herzl Memorial Hall, finished in September 2017, was excavated in the Jerusalem mountain to form an intimate space for a personal and collective experience of commemoration. Above the hall, the mountain was reconstructed with an undulating funnel shaped formation of bricks which opens the hall to the sky, flooding the void with natural light.

 

Kimmel Eshkolot Architects was selected by the Israeli Ministry of Defence to design the memorial in 2006. The second key element to their design concept, apart from the space of the hall, was a 250 meter long continuous “Wall of Names” that wraps around the central sculptural brick structure. Following a spiral ramp up the memorial, the wall is built of 23,000 bricks, each individually engraved with the name of a fallen soldier, the date the soldier was killed and a candle to be lit on the anniversary of the soldier’s death.

Project Architects: Etan Kimmel, Limor Amrani

Final stage computational design and fabrication preparations: Yoav Ronat

Check Point Building

By Kimmel Eshkolot Architects

The unique architectural language of this building aims to transcend the heavy materiality of buildings into the immaterial virtuality of computers and the software world.

The building will house both the School of Computer Science and the Unit for Science Oriented Youth, enabling them to function separately, but at the same time share some of the building’s functions.

The building, located at a central site in the campus, appears to be constantly changing, from material to reflection, blending with the sky and clouds.

The design language is inspired by the image and vision of cloud computing, and is meant to express the ideas inherent in this vision, combined with sustainability.

 

Expected for completion in the Summer of 2018.

Ben Gurion Institute for Israel Studies and Zionism

By Kimmel Eshkolot Architects

The proposed building aspires to match its appearance to the intended content. It combines values ​​of simplicity and modesty, with a complexity that respects those who enter its gates.

 

Its Architectural syntax is a syntax of combinations, of connecting different parts to create a three-dimensional puzzle, just like the Israeli society.

 

This is reflected in the combination of the various volumes that create the total mass, and the design of the facades.

 

The project is planned around a spacious interior patio, which overlooks all parts of the building, like an oasis. On the outside, the building facades are precisely matched to the direction of the sun and wind, with calculated and measured openings, while inside has maximum transparency towards the patio.

A short list competition.
