As we introduce new elements of style and structure, we do it with consideration for both the existing and the possible.
Bar Orian Architects was established by Tal and Gidi Bar Orian in 1990. First recognized for its work in preservation, the firm’s sophisticated approach to additions and extensions of historical structures quickly won it international attention and a growing number of projects. Setting a high standard for the renewal of the old city of Tel Aviv–Yafo, Bar Orian is credited as the main creative force behind its architectural reinvention.
Today, Bar Orian Architects is engaged in a wide range of projects from high rises to high tech bridges. The studio’s design, construction, engineering, and urban planning divisions enable it to continuously expand into new domains while maintaining and optimizing its own standard for highest quality.
Some of Bar Orian’s acclaimed projects include the Beer Sheva pedestrian bridge, the Brenner Compound (home to Tel Aviv’s regional center for the Ministry of Welfare and Income Tax Authority), The Levee historic villa and apartments, and the Graduate Student Village at the Haifa Technion. Internationally, the firm’s repertoire includes such projects as the planned high-tech park at the foot of the Alps in Brosh, Switzerland, two apartment buildings in Brooklyn, New York, and hundreds of housing units in Katowice, Poland.
