Bnei Akiva Preparatory School, Library Building, Givat Shmuel (2009-2011)
The Library Building in the Bnei Akiva Preparatory School has a theater hall, lecture rooms and a library. The materials selected remind the materials of the existing campus, and on the other hand, they are of an original appearance.
The building is full of contrasts. Warm colors (beige walls and wood) contrast with cool ones (grey concrete). Opaque and monolithic walls (ground floor walls) contrast with lacelike ones (wood slabs and perforated concrete). Walls hug other walls. The trees piercing through the ground floor contrast with the still life of the rest of the building. The whole building brings new air, while respecting the existing surroundings.
