Kimmel Eshkolot

Kimmel Eshkolot Architects is an award-winning architecture studio, founded by Etan Kimmel and Michal Kimmel Eshkolot in 1986 in Tel Aviv. The practice of the studio spans across scales with a focus on cultural and civic projects, as well as urban design, residential and interior design.

In their first years of practice, Kimmel Eshkolot Architects were involved in the preservation and rehabilitation of Tel Aviv’s historical Neve Tzedek neighborhood, for which they were awarded the Rokach Prize for Architecture in 1993. Throughout the years they have won several national competitions for the design of high-profile public projects, such as the expansion of the government compound in Jerusalem, the Davidson Museum in the Archaeological Park near the Western Wall and the Memorial Hall for Israel’s Fallen on Mount Herzl.

In 2011, they won the Rechter Prize for Architecture, considered to be the most prestigious award for architecture in Israel. They received the award for the design of a rehabilitation center in Be’er Sheva, in the south of Israel. This project was also selected for project of the year in the international competition of the magazine Israeli Architecture. In 2018, Kimmel Eshkolot Architects won the International Award for Excellence for The Memorial Hall on Mount Herzl from the Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA) and joined RIBA’s list of 20 best new buildings in 2018.

With a team of 30 architects, the studio is currently involved in dozens of projects in Israel, in Europe and in the USA, and recently they won an international competition to design the Albanian Jewish Museum, in Vlora, Albania.
