Founded in 2009, Atelier d'Architecture Laurent Katz has developed a reputation for delivering design excellence and innovation in architecture and design. The Practice works on cultural, residential, health and commercial projects providing full architectural and interior design service. Laurent Katz currently works on major projects in Tel-Aviv and Jerusalem and is teaching a studio of architecture at the Bezalel Academy of Design at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem.
AALK was created to enjoy architecture and design while providing a creative and dynamic service. The practice works under the influence of both Europe and Middle East bringing creativity to its best and offering a service adaptable to the everyday life of each and every one us. AALK's aim is for you to feel comfortable and at ease in the space we design for you. The practice is driven by an approach to open your mind to new experiences while respecting your aspirations and expectations. As a result we adapt ourselves to create details matching your personality responding to the individuality of the building. We enjoy creating and inventing adaptable design from small pieces of furniture to a whole private or public building.
High quality design is a key element to our projects and follows a process of right management and interactive dialogue which leads to an equal opportunity design concept. We are committed to provide best value in architecture and design by following an analytical process of design discussions evolving towards a design development adaptable to you
The work of AALK is based upon a strong and solid base of interactions between the different bodies of design following a rigorous organization and marketing process that will allow us to respect time scale constrains and budgetary restraints on the project.
