Renovation of the unique “Crazy House” – Gaudi House
Denber Projects has refurbished a complex building, also known as the “Crazy House” by the sea, at 181 Hayarkon Street in Tel Aviv. The building was built in the style of the famous Spanish Catalan architect Gaudí. The company was selected to implement the project because of its extensive and successful experience in solving marine corrosion problems and in refurbishing complex and architecturally valuable buildings such as this building.
Denver Projects CEO Baruch Kogan says: “Due to the proximity of the special building to the sea, severe marine corrosion has occurred, which caused the concrete to swell and collapse due to the high salinity in the air due to the high humidity and salt in the air. The concrete crumbled and fell, large and numerous traces of rust appeared, and iron was found in many places. The blown rust was significantly larger than the volume of iron from which it was formed, and also many cracks formed.
He says that the project is very special and requires high professional skills due to the special architectural nature of the building, which needs to be maintained, as the building envelope has many types of cladding: concrete, curtain, decorations and special designs and paintings.
As part of this project, Denber Projects refurbished and carried out cathodic protection as well as zinc and iron rust protection. An epoxy putty was then applied to the entire building to ensure that the corrosion effects did not recur over time.
Denber Projects has extensive experience in renovating condominiums, refurbishing buildings affected by marine corrosion and refurbishing buildings, among others, the company refurbished the Holiday Inn Ashkelon, which suffered from sea corrosion problems like this unique home, Beacon renovation Park and Kennedy Park and renovation of the Coop office building. Clalit on st. Arlozorov, 101.
“Crazy House” is the nickname for a shared residence located on Yarkon Street in Tel Aviv, near Atarim Square. The building was designed by the architect Leon Ginba in 1989. From the moment of its construction, the building was considered an architectural “wonder” of the city.
The building, which is completely different in style from any other building in the country and in Tel Aviv in particular, was inspired by residential buildings designed by Antoni Gaudí in Barcelona in his unique style, such as Casa Mila or Beit Bali.
This structure is characterized by curved and sculpted forms taken from the natural world and resembling vegetation, skeletons or parts of the human body. Similar to Gaudí’s buildings, this unique home also includes parts that cannot be built according to the accepted plans, but require sculptural work in the building itself. However, Gaudí’s residential buildings are considered architectural masterpieces, and the “lunatic asylum” is a local joke due to some significant differences.
The “Crazy House” is actually a building with a simple concrete frame with a clear division into apartments and balconies, to which artificially distorted parts have been glued.
The breaking of the shape is not complete and the structure looks like a concrete cube in torn clothes.
