ToHA, Tel Aviv
In October 2016, Ron Arad Architects unveiled the latest renderings of an office complex in Tel Aviv, which is expected to become the tallest building in Israel. The project, which is a joint venture between two large investment and development companies, is currently under construction.
ToHA will consist of two glazed towers – one containing 28 floors and another rising to 63, creating 160,000 sq. m of floor space. The complex will also include three storeys of community facilities as well as a large roof garden.
The forms of the two towers will feature angles designed to maximise solar shading for occupants, while also giving them plenty of natural light. Parts of the complex will be raised up on 'legs' containing technical plant areas, allowing the creation of gardens and plazas both around and under the towers.
Construction of the 53,000 sq. m phase 1 building began in 2013, and is due for completion end 2018. When complete, the building will surpass the 244m high City Gate Tower as Israel's tallest skyscraper.
