Rival District, Tel Aviv
The area around Rival street in Tel Aviv is changing from a low-density industrial area with garages into a compound that includes high-density construction with commercial and recreational facilities, plus residential and educational institutions. We were asked by the municipality to prepare a masterplan for the public open spaces, which would be a framework for both the municipality and entrepreneurs.
The plan identified the arteries and places that have the potential to produce real change in the entire site– a double boulevard along HaRakevet Street, which will function as part of a green, urban thoroughfare, creating an inviting setting for the district and its commercial facades. Areas for specific intervention were identified, based on varying functions such as playing fields, public institutions, and combined parking and loading areas during various times of the day.
