About Electra Tower

Located near the Ayalon freeway in a new business park development in Tel Aviv, the Electra Tower’s design concept involved creating a dialogue between the structural frame elements and the glazed façade of the tower, which was then broken into four segments. This approach creates a form which offers unique views of the tower from different perspectives with a contrast of solid and void, opacity and transparency.

By notching the corners of the building plan, outdoor terraces were created and more corner glazing was provided for offices. The concrete structure of the tower was carefully designed, involving pre-cast and cast-in-place slabs to meet the needs of the geometry of the building while also improving efficiency. The exposed columns were reduced in diameter, with extra reinforcing to emphasize their slenderness. The project was developed as a design/build project, optimizing design and construction time.
