Landscape Design of the Visitors Pavilion and its Environs

visitor pavilion

Green building principles are implemented and showcased at the Visitors Pavilion

The roof of the Visitors Pavilion is a green roof, supporting a well-kept garden that insulates the building from the outside temperature and maintains a pleasant ambient temperature inside the building.

The sloping roof also forms the walls of the building, with two aspects that support distinctly different vegetation:

The south-facing aspect faces the Nature Park and continues the appearance of randomly-distributed native plants characteristic of the Park’s vegetation.

The north-facing aspect, on which grow cultivated plants, faces the Memorial Gardens, and has the characteristic look of the cultivated plants of the Gardens. In contrast to the south-facing aspect, on this aspect the planting is in large clumps of shrubs and low prostrate plants.

The gardens on the sloping roof of the Visitors Pavilion create a kind of green ‘blanket’ that links between the Nature Park and the Memorial Gardens; this ‘blanket’ in a way ‘returns’ some of the green areas sacrificed to construct the building.

The Visitors Pavilion includes inner courtyards planted with deciduous Oriental plane trees that provide visitors with shade in the summer and sun in the winter.

The area surrounding the Visitors Pavilion

In the parking lots located to the south of the Visitors Pavilion we planted wild Israeli tree species, characteristic of the natural environment, that provide shade to visitors.

In their center is a double avenue of olive trees that creates the primary axis of movement between the Nature Park and the entrance gates to the Gardens. During the summer the ground beneath the olive trees is covered by the fresh foliage of wild grapes, and in the winter by a pink carpet of Persian cyclamen.

The landscape architect Amir Blum, from Miller-Blum Environmental Planning, is responsible for the landscape design of the Visitors Pavilion and the parking and service areas.
