  • Humans at the Center of Things

    The Bauhaus movement, which evolved in the early 20th century in Germany, focused on providing a visual expression to a social, political and cultural worldview. The building was planned, designed and constructed around human beings as the center of activity. Structures that were planned in accordance with this worldview conveyed the Zeitgeist through a clean, flowing, open and simple spatial composition, and provided a visual expression to the machine aesthetic, which molted its excessive decorations out of the belief that architecture can improve society and create a new and better world.

  • Construction & Real Estate Sector

    In 2015-2016, several regulatory steps were taken by the government and the banks in order to affect the industry’s supply and demand. For example, demand-curtailing steps were taken aimed both at young couples (an increase of the mortgages interest rates by the banks) and at investors (governmental increase of investment apartments purchasing tax and taxation of third apartments). From the supply aspect – the “Mehir La’Mishtaken” (government price-capped) program was expanded, and the marketing of tens of thousands of reduced-price apartments for eligible candidates has begun.
