Mixed-use-retail, Offices, Underground parking, 196 Residential units
ONO-CENTER is a Mixed-use Retail, Offices, Underground parking & 196 Residential units in Or-Yhuda, Israel
Ono Center, Ono Valley’s landmark complex, forms a new urban continuum between Kiryat Ono and Or Yehuda. Located in the Bait BaPark neighborhood (along the 461 Highway), Ono Center offers a variety of uses: the northern area features 197 apartments in four 12-story buildings that sit over two storeys of retail; the southern area, made of four interconnected masses, features five storeys of offices that, likewise, sit over two storeys of retail. The entire complex is located over an underground parking facility.
A bustling yet intimate pedestrian avenue — flanked by the residential and office buildings — breathes life into the complex. The avenue, which performs as an outdoor mall, offers a pleasant experience to residents, office workers and visitors. Smaller passageways and bridges, spanning from north to south, intersect the main avenue to create an efficient circulation scheme.
Subtractions in the masses create unique frame-like elements, as well as large balconies for employees. Additionally, offsets in the upper levels allow for spacious roof balconies — a perfect setting for large events.
