Decide on a kibbutz for half the price: living in today's kibbutzim is totally not what you thought - voila! native


The (relatively) cheap land, the excellent education, the open spaces, led the kibbutzim to be a beacon of light for those who want a home on the land

When you think of a kibbutz, surely thoughts of an older generation, volunteers, cooperatives and socialism cross your mind.

But living in a kibbutz is a completely different story today.

"Today's kibbutzim are light years away from those kibbutz rooms of the past," explains interior designer Adi Klein, from "Studio Dolo" who lives in a community extension in Kibbutz Sharid.

According to her, "On the one hand, the kibbutzim went through privatization, which requires renovation for many of the houses. On the other hand, in light of the lack of space in the kibbutzim themselves, the extensions have become popular, and they house the next generation of the kibbutzniks and at the same time bring in new people from outside, those who want to gain quality of life, community life, education Ilai, a rural environment, and on the other hand, they don't give up a beautiful and aesthetic house. Relative to the kibbutz, these are projects with substantial budgets, steep carpentry, furniture details, meticulous planning, plenty of materials and details."

Yanon Ben David of Moshav Netor, who owns an architecture, planning and design office, adds: "The kibbutz has changed its character. The new residents want to create pampering spaces, ones that correspond with the outside and bring the view inside. It is important to them a house that preserves the family atmosphere, one that does not intrude on the common spaces The building style is not repetitive, or egalitarian as it was in the past. The house expresses its residents. Everyone brings their inner world through the house, and the sky is the limit. The awakening of the kibbutzim is also reflected in the Center and Sharon. People are attracted to expansions in kibbutzim and open spaces. Land price In a kibbutz, whether it is in Sharon or in the north, it will cost significantly less than land of a similar size in urban cities. Furthermore, land in kibbutzim is more available than urban land."

The architect and interior designer Shiran Malol explains: "As someone who moved from Kiryat Motzkin to Kibbutz Yas'or, the spaces are huge, and the building rights in the kibbutz are high. The city has a lot of restrictions and bureaucracy, compared to the kibbutz. As someone who made the move with my family, I can testify that living in the kibbutz provides a quality of life, Everyone can plan their house precisely, choose the finishes that are suitable for them, and create luxurious homes. The land is less expensive, and thus a larger budget remains for investing in the house. The goal in building in the kibbutz is to bring in the natural resources, to take advantage of the natural light, the flow of the air, to maximize the air and spaces of the kibbutz and bring them inside the house."

Malol further explains that since the corona virus there has been a significant increase in land prices in the kibbutzim: "The prices are still significantly lower than the prices in the city. You can build very nice houses in the kibbutzim, with the same investment as an average 3-4 room apartment in the outskirts. People understand this and flock to the kibbutzim."
