We are pleased and honoured to announce that the Shelter for Victims of Domestic Violence, designed by Amos Goldreich Architecture in collaboration with Jacobs-Yaniv Architects (Israel), has received the World Architecture Festival award for the best future project in the health category.
Both Amos Goldreich and Oshri Yaniv attended the festival in Berlin, between 16-18 November, to present the scheme to a panel of renowned judges.
This is one of only few examples of a purpose-built shelter of this kind in Israel or elsewhere in the world, tailored to the specific needs of its residents and designed with input from the staff who will run it.
Our aspiration is that it will address its inhabitants’ needs successfully and show that it is indeed possible, despite limited funding in this sector, to produce a good building and one worthy of its inhabitants and employees.
We would love to inspire the implementation of other socially-minded buildings that will project an architecture of hope.
