'The Teachers' House' - Meghiddo Architects

'The Teachers' House,' Tel Aviv, by Meghiddo Architects.

The architects' website describes the project:
The Teacher's House, located in [located in the midst of an affluent residential neighbourhood in] Tel Aviv, is a new building type conceived to service Israel's teachers community as a gathering center for learning and social activities, such as conferences, seminars, exhibitions and concerts.

We decided to create a garden-building where plants become a building material along exposed concrete and stone; where landscape design, totally integrated to architecture, becomes a tool of education; where human movement is stimulated by continuously changing spaces.
