WORK | Projects of ETAN KIMMEL


Set on top of the central train station in the center of Modi’in city, this multi-use project includes 50,000 sqm of various programs in a podium and two towers. The podium features retail spaces as well as a hotel, one tower is residential and the other is offices. For the facades of this project, a special lattice was developed that wraps around the unique volumes of the project while connecting between different programs, creating a continuous architectural entity. The project is near completion.

Kimmel Eshkolot is designing this multi-use project of 120,000 sqm in Rishon LeZion, including a museum, offices, retail, and apartments. At the heart of the project is a high-quality public urban space for the city, which surrounds a beautiful 19th-century complex of industrial brick buildings – preserved as a monument – and converted into a shopping center. The project is concerned with creating an urban composition made of different scales and architectures. Three residential towers are designed next to the preserved monuments, aiming to connect to the site by using contemporary terracotta materials that refer to the old brick structures.
