Tel Aviv-based architects and designers embarked on a pro-bono project that elevates the aesthetic of a local refugee children school. Named 'Hayarden,' the educational institution is situated in a working-class neighborhood and is intended to "become a home and a safe space for the children." The project is taken up by designer Sarit Shani Hay, architects Chen Steinberg Navon and Ayelet Fisher, with support from not-for-profit organization Zionut 2000.

Some of the new features of the refugee children school boast house-like communal spaces and vibrantly colored embellishments in the form of furniture and decor. The aesthetic is intended to be uplifting and playful, hinting at a tolerant environment. In addition, designer Lavi Kushelevich contributed to the project with an "ecological garden and playground."
