Kfar Kasem, an Arab-Israeli town, has a population of about 17,000 citizens. The village is an important junction between Israel and the West Bank, between the religious heritage and the western-liberal entities. The village is located near one of Israel’s leading business parks (Rosh A’ayin Industrial Zone).

The project includes several clinics for infant and mother care. It also includes a lecture hall to allow young mothers of the village to aquire education for better care of their children and families. The building concept is based on a wall that “greets” the visitor at the entrance of the site and grows as the visitor aproaches the building. The wall finally penetrates the building and becomes a partition wall between the different clinics while keeping its original texture and colour.
