Yokneam

Client: Yokneam Municipality
Location: Yokneam
Area: 10.000 Sq.m.
Year: 2005
 

Liquid surface mountain topography Despite the school's needs for many flat surfaces, the important principle in the project is to maintain scenic features of landscape/ topography of the existing hill, and the views. Rather than modifying the existing ground, we suggest letting it use buildings' roof tops as the straight surfaces such as sports fields, recess and gathering areas.

Economic = Ecology

Under a construction which flattens the topography and deletes existing landscape, by means of cutting, high retaining walls and pickling, we propose to retain the qualities that exist in the landscape, with adjustments to its ports as possible. Landscaped topography offers clear advantages in maintaining the campus over the years, as opposed to the construction and operation of all areas of development and off-site Hyrax.
Planning with economic and ecological emphasis, the school will be able to enjoy its simple construction and low maintenance over time. Students will enjoy unique spatial qualities, natural land and expansive views.

Interior and exterior

The program divided into four one-story buildings just lying on the ground and connects to different levels of the roof and the floor. This allows the students during the school day to come and go to and from the buildings and enjoy the different environments that involve the interior and exterior.

Buildings

The elementary school encloses one structure that contains all the functions, classes and administration. The high schools organising the structures in a similar way, two classes structures (two high school division) and in between laboratories and administrative that serves the entire campus.

Connection between the buildings to the ground

Each building consists of three layers: a floor bridges between different levels of the existing topography of the site, the program, organised by straps between the classrooms and roof spaces levelled in favor of free space and sports activities.

User - friendly

Classes organised in a perpendicular structure to the longitudinal strips and windows facing the sun, the landscape or the patio. Transitions between classes have free and broad convergence zones through the patios; you can easily go on the roof and play at recess. The floors are built as a relief to the height of 70cm. made of soft material. Rooftops continuous ground and covered with soil and vegetation.

Access

To school have two main entrances. First, to the elementary school from the west in the high part of the hill to allow easy access to the younger children and the other is from the middle to the high school on the northeast side of the hill and out of all the buildings can be reached without going up and down.

Motion

Students can be reached from anywhere to anywhere on school grounds. A movement between buildings connected by meetings between the natural topography and the floors and roofs of the buildings so that the circulation follows the topography lines and comfortable hiking produces students walking options with a minimum slope. The children can get in and out of the buildings in various levels, from the top, bottom and sides.

Phasing

It is possible to construct four separate buildings in four stages. It is also possible to construct just the shell structures and make the interior stages. This way construction will be possible in stages without interruption to the ongoing active parts."
