The newest addition to the government quarter in Jerusalem is the nearly-completed State Comptroller Building. Designed by Kolker Kolker Epstein, the structure features eight above-ground storeys and two below, making it the tallest government office in the area. Three additional underground levels will be used for parking.
The building features a modern design that is simple enough to remain unassuming while still complementing the area. The lobby takes advantage of Jerusalem’s generous amounts of natural sunlight and the penthouse office brings sophistication to the high-level governmental role.
The project cost an estimated 130 million shekels and has been through various stages of planning for over 20 years.
