ToHA was commissioned as a joint venture between two large investment and development companies that procured a coveted 1.8-hectare site in the center of Tel Aviv. The two sculptural towers offer 160,000 square meters of floor space and feature tapered facades partially elevated on legs for a minimal footprint on the ground plane. The glazed and angled facades are carefully oriented to ensure that every desk within the generous office floor-plates have access to natural light.

In minimizing the building footprint, the architects open the ground plane up to public plazas and densely planted gardens. Three stories of community facilities within the building and a large roof garden will also be accessible to the public. Construction for phase 1 of ToHA began in 2013 and the project is slated for completion at the end of 2018.
