About

Mayslits Kassif Architects was founded in Tel Aviv in 1994 by Ganit Mayslits Kassif and Udi Kassif, in 2008 Maor Roytman joined as a partner in the firm. Since its establishment, the practice fuses various disciplinary categories and scales including public buildings, landscape architecture, urban design, and strategic planning, all reflecting the firm’s belief that architecture is a leading agent of cultural and environmental transformation.

Viewing the built environment as a field for research and innovation we operate with radical optimism in order to actively cope with environmental and social challenges and grow inspiring, just and sustainable places. Rethinking common categories of public and private, natural and artificial, stable and flexible, we aspire to create open spaces in the wide sense of the word, open to interpretation, open to change, open to the wilderness of diversity. Exploring various concepts such as generosity, specifity and possibility we develop new tools for thinking and making the new fabricated SuperNature of our environment.

Mayslits Kassif Architects have won several major public competitions and notable national and international awards reflecting their prominent and transformative contribution within the urban and public sphere.
