ROM FARM – PTSD center

architecture & design May 2024 Kamon mountain

The design and creation of the new barn space at Rom Farm, in Moshav Kamon, is a continuation project from the connection with the Glow glamping group and the Brothers in Yoga Association in the workshops that were held for the healing space established in the Maccabiah Village as an answer to diverse populations affected by the attack on 7/10.

The focal point of The Barn is its alternative Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) therapy facility, where guests can explore holistic treatments designed to promote well-being. Surrounded by the tranquility of the farm, it serves as a retreat for mind-body healing and offers a range of therapies tailored to individual needs. Among other things, the space will be used as a place for community events and meetings, thereby providing a canvas for creating meaningful memories and fostering a sense of togetherness.

In order to allow different activities to take place at the same time and diverse events to take place within it, the design of the barn is based on a modular principle, so that the central space can be divided into 3 sub-spaces and most of the furniture inside is mobile. The design of the space and the elements within it included the use of sustainable processes with upcycled materials.
In order to improve acoustics and lighting, we created in collaboration with Daika company a lighting fixture that combines discarded solid wood strips with acoustic panels made of wood waste (Daika). In addition, the partitions that allow the division of the space are made from 42 m2 of discarded boat sail.

The bar table, the kitchenette bar, the library shelves and the structure of the lighting body, we created them from 24 upcycled wooden pallets that completed their life cycle. This amount of wood is the equivalent to rebirth two pine trees of approximately 20 years old each.

This project has been possible thanks to the support of our beloved friends from Argentina  “JUNTOS POR ISRAEL“.

We thank you and appreciate it very much.
