A competition entry for the renewal of hangar 2 & 3 in Jaffa Port. The agenda: Jaffa port does not wish to become another closed retail area. it is looking for a different audience that seeks authentic places, and retail is not necessarily its main interest.

Jaffa port contains a functioning fishermen port. It has unique spaces. Its authenticity should not be lost. The problem is that Jaffa port does not have a profitable economic model for developing.

Solution: A smart distribution of sources would include specific programs with superior quality design and finishes, as opposed to compromised design and finishes for the whole complex
