Mahanot Kafrisin, , Lod, Israel.
Lod is a city facing several challenges, with relatively high crime rates and low socio-economic level population. I decided to create a place that will be a safe haven for the different populations, especially for women seeking a place where they can feel comfortable and remove their covers, and for children who are looking for a source of activities - serving as an oasis for them in the city.
Concept and Space
A dome is placed at the center of the building. The visitor enters through a sliding door and into a magical space. He witnesses a big waterfall in front of him, with luxurious seating areas, hammocks, small gardens and soft-sounded streaming water around him. The visitor is wreathed in soothing light, water and nature.
