The preliminary Documentation of Rimon complex was commissioned by the municipality of Kiryat Ono in 2021, in order to identify the values of the complex and defining a municipal policy for future interventions and balconies additions.
Rimon neighborhood established in 1965 as part of the "development area" of Kiryat Ono. The neighborhood was planned by Architect Israel Lotan, who was responsible for planning the entire development area in Kiryat Ono. Based on the "neighborhood unit" model the neighborhood was designed as a circular, holistic and complete scheme. The neighborhood includes 15 residential buildings, a commercial center, a kindergarten complex and a high-quality open, space designed by the landscape architects Lipa Yahalom and Dan Tzur.
This documentation file focuses on the different types of residential buildings built in the complex over the years and the rich landscape design. The documentation reviews the historical background for the establishment of the complex, its architectural and spatial characteristics in the past and present, and the urban and cultural contexts as a basis for urban renewal.
The principles for balconies additions was based on conclusions and values of the built and open space that emerged from the preliminary documentation file.
