Matthias Hollwich, founder of New York-based architects HWKN, describes the facade design as ‘a gesture of invitation’. Inside the box-shaped 2,500 sq m building, an atrium cuts through three floors of performance spaces and studios. The project was a collaboration with Erez Ella, founder of Tel Aviv-based HQ Architects (HQA), which co-designed JAMD’s extension with HWKN, addresses a fundamental question: ‘How do you let chaos into architecture?’
