    Yoga Retreat Center
    Location: San Marcos, Lake Atitlan, Guatemala.
    Size: 1000 m2
    Year: 2019

    Overlooking 3 volcanoes and the magnificent Atitlan lake, a new place was born.

    Bringing harmony to both body and mind, the center is built for Yoga and Ayurveda.

    Using the contrast between the common local stone foundations to the lightness of elevated structures, the design follows the experience of the guest: Leaving behind the intense rhythm of modern life, and offers a new way to connect with oneself, with community and nature.

    The project contains a variety of public spaces: a one of a kind Yoga Shala, ceremonial space, therapy rooms, ecological pool and a silent retreat area, as well as luxurious private cabins with panoramic views.

    The Orangery Luxury Bar
    Location: A secret location in South America.
    Size: 500 m2
    Year: 2018

    Located in a developing part of a colonial city in South America, the project aims to create an urban oasis.

    Hidden from the street, the bar is the heart of the project. Creating a communicative atmosphere that simulates a theater, it invites the visitors to explore it by walking around, yet creates private areas for conversations and meetings.

    The bar is surrounded by meeting rooms, co-working areas and a boutique restaurant that serves locally sourced high-quality food.

    Addressing the local tropical climate, the building layout is designed to generate cross ventilation, letting nature into the building, and using wind and sunlight in a mindful way.

    The Earth House
    Location: Private Residence, Morocco.
    Size: 400 m2
    Year: 2020 - Planning

    “The desert is a natural extension of the inner silence of the body”. The project is designed around the courtyard as the heart of the house.

    Generates a serene, open atmosphere as well as a gathering space. Based on the sustainable courtyard archetype, the design uses the natural topography to balance between its inner world and the beautiful nature surrounding the site.

    The sustainable aspect of the design was highly important to the client, using local materials and traditional crafts that connects the design to its unique location and culture. Using earth as the main construction material gives the house a warm cozy feeling as well as passive energy saving benefits.

    The microclimate that the courtyard creates, using water elements, the trees and the wind makes this house comfortable all year round.

    About tnm®
    The New Movement is a new school of architecture born in an endless journey to define the structure as a sanctum for the soul.

    An architecture geared to fuel the creativity and wellbeing of its inhabitants, whether they are permanent dwellers or transient visitors searching for inspiration.
    An architecture that relies on the tension between constant movement and desired stillness, between the human memory palette and the unique site-specific properties of the location and it’s heritage.

    The New Movement is based on a number of pillars that together create a holistic experience of wellbeing creativity and relatedness. A place to re-charge your batteries after a long journey and to re-stock on energies before the next one.

    a nomadic lifestyle,
    I have a special place in my heart for tiny living. Tiny houses

    A 21ST CENTURY ARCHITECTURE PROCESS

    process

    Just like many work processes that are being re-written, architecture no longer requires staying put, definitely not the kind of architecture that works globally in remote locations and based on inter-disciplinary hyper specialized teams.

    01
    Tailor made
    The concept development method we use is personalized, one-of-a-kind and location-based for each project; from site to sketch, from idea to execution.
    02
    Innovative
    Being part of a global network of innovators-in-motion means always staying up to date on the latest ideas, materials and technologies. We balance ancient building knowledge with modern techniques such as 3D clay printing to achieve age-old results, but faster and more suited for today’s purposes.
    03
    Glocal
    We employ an integrated work process that allows us to design and execute projects worldwide, curating global and local experts. We detail the design, coordinate logistics and legal, as well as preparing the foundations for work.
    04
    Scalable
    Having a location-independent team allows us to work with the most talented professionals and scale the team’s size and character according to the project.
    About me
    FREEDOM IS THE SOURCE OF MY CREATIVITY AND THE STARTING POINT FOR MY JOURNEY
    One day, as I was working at one of Israel’s most prestigious architecture firms, I realized there must be more to life than sitting behind a desk for 10 hours a day. I knew I needed a change. I knew I needed to explore a different kind of architecture.
    So, I left everything behind and began travelling. I embraced the nomad lifestyle. Endless curiousity and exploration in search of inspiration and the elements that could potentially create a home that embodied the freedom of the journey with the peace of the destination.
