Co.Lab@Givaat Haviva

Year: 2016

Co.Lab at Givat Haviva is a proposal for the strategic re-use of a cultural and educational hub for social entrepreneurship at the Givaat Haviva Campus.

Givat Haviva is a non-profit organization founded in 1949 as the national education center of the Kibbutz Federation. It has since emerged as a pivotal educational center for social justice, dedicated to promoting civic equality, cooperation and social inclusion in Israel and internationally.

Building on this legacy, Co.Lab re-envisions the Givat Haviva campus as a hub for social entrepreneurship, serving as the educational and community engagement center for organizations and activities that promote social justice and inter-cultural cooperation.

We worked with Givat Haviva to create the strategy and vision for Co.Lab.  Work included strategy, naming, branding and a physical re-use plan for revitalizing the campus to create a unique venue for hosting residencies, seminars, courses, camps, conferences, meetings, forums, events and more. Work on Co.Lab is in collaboration with Yoav Messer Architects.
