Architect David Tajchman envisions spectacular cellular skyscraper for Tel Aviv

Architect Envisions Spectacular Cellular Skyscraper For Tel Aviv-1

Although several skyscrapers have sprung up in Tel Aviv in recent years, the Israeli city is largely populated by low-rise buildings and Bauhaus homes. Belgian architect David Tajchman is hoping to change all that with his new proposal. Envisioned as a mixed-use high-rise structure of the future, the  Gran Mediterraneo will boast a host of amazingly innovative features, including self-charging stations of electric cars and a fully-automated car parking system.

Unlike most skyscrapers that are made up of lifeless horizontal blocks stacked one on top of the other and wrapped with mirrored glass, Tajchman’s tower has a spectacular curvilinear design, interspersed with native Mediterranean vegetation. Built using pristine white concrete, the building breaks away from conventional architectural practices, creating a unique cellular appearance that is both organic and futuristic.

According to Tajchman, the use of white concrete is intended as a tribute to the city’s Bauhaus legacy. The tower, as the architect points out, will be home to residential, business as well as commercial spaces. Additionally, it will house a hotel, several high-end bars and restaurants, farming areas, public gardens, swimming pools and also dead sea spas.

Furthermore, offices and businesses will have the option of conducting special events inside the building itself. Radiating outward from the structure’s central core, each of the apartments will feature vast floor-to-ceiling windows that help shield the interiors from the bright sunlight. Speaking about the project, Tajchman said:

Current and future developments of skyscrapers in Tel Aviv do not make the evolution of the city’s skyline specific to its architectural qualities in a Mediterranean environment.

What’s more, the Gran Mediterraneo will boast a number of other luxuries, including a fully-automated car park and specially-built induction charging stations for electric vehicles.
