after winning a conceptual design competition for the new hub, architects keren avni, leeat ainhorn and carmit harnik managed to turn the rundown industrial hangars into a thriving art community. situated in southern tel aviv, the artport TLV is a new art center comprised of eight studios for artists in residency, a communal office/hangout room and a 200 sqm flexible gallery. the space between the hangars is turned into an exterior showcase as well as as a public pathway for outdoor art related activities.

  • Isn’t this where “Fresh Paint” took place?
    Congratulations on getting into Design Boom – but why don’t you state location Tel Aviv?
    Is it because then it won’t be published??

in addition to the awarded designs, we do feel that almost all deserve our attention, that is why we publish
the best 100-200 entries too.)
