The Geological Institute

The Geological Institute, located at the base of Givat Ram, is an office and research complex that was carved into the hillside and houses the employees of this Government Institute.

This project was executed under strict green building standards along with the protection requirements as required from a government institution. Advanced envelope systems were developed, giving the building a unique appearance together with especially high functionality and user comfort. Double facades including exterior shading, blast-resistant systems, glass roofs and modular interior partitions on the office floors make the building one of the most architecturally advanced buildings in the Capital.
