Architect: Michal Schaffer Emmanuel – Schaffer Architects, 2019
The architect, Michal Schaffer, leads these tours of a building where she resides with her family, whose renovation that she designed in compliance with an urban renewal plan was recently completed. During the tours, she will share details about the complex and challenging process of executing this Tama 38 renewal project in which the apartment owners also served as the developers – starting with enlisting their support for the project and followed by the planning and construction stages. The renovation included adding 5 more apartments to the building, the excavation of an underground robotic parking garage, and the addition of protected rooms, patios and service areas. The existing apartments were also remodeled based on a design made by Schaffer. Tour participants will be able to have a look at one of the apartments, admitted in groups of 15 at a time.
