Beit Gabriel Cultural Center, Sea of Galilee, 1992, 5,000 m2

Like small middle-eastern villages Beit Gabriel lies on the south shores of Lake Galilee with a large shaded terrace looking north to Mount Hermon on a clear day. It was donated by Gita Sherover in memory of her son, as a cultural and social center for this comparatively remote part of the country. The activities within Beit Gabriel are designed along a pedestrian walk alternating with heavily planted courtyards and views of the lake, theatre/concert hall, exhibition spaces, cinema, and library, conference room (where King Hussein and Rabin signed a peace agreement), and the main café-restaurant and meeting place. With its many varied cultural and social activities, Beit Gabriel has become a popular regional center and tourist destination.
