GRAN MEDITERRANEO, ISRAEL
Creative architect David Tajchman has submitted plans for a high-rise complex to include a luxury 117-room hotel and introduces the concept of vertical living…
The Gran Mediterraneo is an innovative concept of a high-rise building that integrates a public automated car-park, operates as the first induction charging station for public and shared electric driverless vehicles in the city (future ‘sherut’), and mixes programs of vertical living: residential apartments and 117-room hotel, bars and restaurants, farming and public gardens, swimming pools and dead sea spas, co-working spaces for offices and start-ups, educational and events spaces. Innovative also with its topological geometry giving a spiral effect to the high-rise, the Gran Mediterraneo breaks with the global and usual stacking of horizontal slabs wrapped with mirrored glass, aiming to renew Tel Aviv skyline with a ‘Unesco proclaimed white city’ specific vertical architecture.
The proposed hotel will feature nine different types of rooms and will occupy one third of the property. Creative architect David Tajachman was inspired to design the high-rise building after staying on Kibbupz, an agricultural collective settlement where economic living is encouraged. “The Kibbupz way of life inspired me on this project along with the pure-white architecture from the 1930s,” Tajachman explains.
Construction on the building is yet to start and Tajachman has been in communication with potential hotel investors.
