Bedouin Youth Village in the Negev Desert

These renders were made for the winning proposal in an Architectural competition for the Desert Star foundation.
By using authentic lighting and materials with specific-local models for the flora we tried to maintain an inviting atmosphere of a modest oasis. It was also important for us to emphasize the way this project can come to life by focusing in the common areas and the pedestrian avenue.

The project consists of a village and boarding school for the youth of the neighboring Bedouin tribes, with a planned area of ​​23,000 square meters. The most prominent element in the architectural plan is a pedestrian avenue spread out along it that connects the elements of the institution built on both sides.
