Sharp, clean lines characterise the architecture of this complex for the rehabilitation of the disabled, located on the edge of the Negev desert. Constructed of cast-in-place concrete, the facility accommodates such functions as housing, sports, dining, physiotherapy and administration in a schema that takes advantage of the topography to create essentially two ground floors interconnecting five monolithic units with heights up to three storeys. A thin roof is employed as one of the ground floors, interlocking, and interconnecting the vertically-stacked units that are also connected through a series of corridors and bridges. The spaces in-between the buildings, connected by thin bridges, are treated as courtyards for public use.
