Israel’s Ramat Hanadiv Visiting Center is Buried Beneath Its Gardens
by Bridgette Meinhold, 12/12/11
The Ramat Hanadiv Visiting Center located in Zichron Yaakov, Israel is a lovely low-lying structure that is buried underneath its own gardens. The multi-functional space enjoys insulation from the plants and the earth, but it also has a naturally daylit corridor in the center that pulls light into all the rooms. The visitor's center was designed by Ada Karmi-Melamede Architects in collaboration with Guy Teomi and Yuval Amitzi, and the landscape architecture was conceived by Amir Blum. Their objective was to design a building that would meet the goals of the nature park with the lowest possible impact.
