 Zameret Park, by TeMA Urban Landscape Design in Tel Aviv, Israel. Perhaps the first thing to capture your attention from our headline was the unfamiliar word Zameret. That Hebrew word, often used as a girl’s name, literally means tree top. If you are wondering about the relationship between the origin of the word Zameret and the park, you are about to read the riddle within the framework of this project. To tickle your fancy even more, here is the philosophy behind the park, revealed on the website of TeMA Urban Landscape Design: “We develop our projects with an underlying theme. The theme runs like a thread between various parts and layers of each project, thus enabling its comprehension beyond the aesthetic experience. The theme serves the different planning phases, allowing for a fruitful dialogue to take place within the design team, as well as with the client.

That underlying theme has given character and distinction to Zameret Park, the landscape jewel of the Zameret neighborhood in Tel Aviv, Israel. The prime design concept covers the understanding that the newly built environment of the neighborhood should be strengthened and enriched. And naturally, the best possible way to achieve that effect is through excellently designed landscape architecture.

A good precondition for exceptional landscaping, in this case, is the fact that all of the buildings in the neighborhood are surrounded by green space, with only 18 percent of the whole space being occupied by buildings. Related Articles: 

The luxurious buildings in the Zameret neighborhood consist of 14 skyscrapers, a small shopping mall with an adjacent office tower, and a future school. In order to design landscaping highlighting the luxurious nature of the architecture, TeMA created an elegant, exquisite solution, which beyond all question has fulfilled that aim.

The “Green River” Concept of Zameret Park

The graceful landscape design relies on a linear landscape core, planted with a diversity of native trees that cast shade on stylized grass mountains. Thus, a “green river” is formed, which mainly serves as a connection to both the pedestrian and underground parking entrances to each of the 14 high-rise buildings.

As the name of the park suggests, the basic form used throughout the design is the circle. This simple geometrical form contributes to the holistic fine expression of the green area, and at the same time varies the appearance of the neighborhood.

As a result, a delightful green avenue is created, symbolizing a “river” of trees that invites visitors to dive into its green waves of recreation. A Multi-functional Space To further enrich the enjoyable experience of visiting Zameret Park, the landscaping team considered the use of diverse elements, providing versatile activities within the area. Passive recreation is represented by the attractive biological fountains, alluring people through their classy, inviting design of contrasting dark pebbles and fresh, green aquatic plants. Taking Care of Recreational Space The combination of the stylized grass mountains with the comfortable wood benches also brings new elements to the recreational space, varying both the experience and the design of the site. Active recreation covers the concave circular playgrounds, inviting skaters, cyclists, and children to gather and spend time playing and entertaining one another.

Social gathering is also included by means of the two plazas, developed at the north and at the south of the neighborhood. To frame all those components, an architectural pergola serves as a scale medium between the high built environment and the pedestrians below.

All of these components of contribute to the creation of the finished, successful design of that urban space. The Hidden Strength of Individual Approach To draw a general conclusion on what transforms an ordinary urban space into a distinguished and vibrant green avenue, here comes the belief of TeMA Urban Landscape Design team, as their website indicates: “We believe that each project and site should be endowed with a particular design concept and a unique idea. This approach to design originates in the notion that different sites and programs have singular characteristics. We always develop a design idea with notable aspects, not only at a conceptual level, but distinguishable at every detail.” And at every detail, that “green river” of Tel Aviv has become a distinctive and delightful urban landmark.
