This project was initiated by the Municipality of Modiin with the aim of creating a safe and inviting place for local teens and young adults to gather, dance and enjoy themselves. The program called for separate entrances for boys and girls, as well as bathrooms for each in separate areas. The building includes two dance floors which can be combined if necessary and one outdoor space for concerts. The total size of the building is 600 sqm.
The building is designed as a cube where part of the shape has been removed. The iconic structure makes it is easily recognizable and comprehensible from the outside, and sets it as a landmark in the industrial zone where it is located. It is also easy to build with simple code-colored industrial finishes.
At this time, the project is on hold.
