We shape our buildings, and afterwards, our buildings shape us.”

Winston Churchill in a speech in the House of Commons on October 28, 1944.


We at TZAMIR  believe that the design of environments big, like cities or small, like buildings,  is a result of people's and designer's ideas._cc781905-5cde-3194 -bb3b-136bad5cf58d_ After environments are occupied,  they change people's ideas and behavior for better or worse. Hence, good design makes people better.




The company provides a full range of Urban, Regional, and National Planning services supported by GIS proficiencies.

The practice is led by Yigal Tzamir, former Professor of Architecture & Planning at the Technion (Israel Institute of Technology). He founded Tzamir company in 1991, and since then has been leading numerous multi-disciplinary planning assignments on the national, regional, and local scales.

Our experience includes extensive international practice, especially in Africa over the past 12 years. The Israeli experience is even longer, beyond 30 years. It covers national physical plans, Regional and Metropolitan Plans, Urban Plans on an entire city scale, neighborhood plans, Waterfront Plans, and the design of large-scale commercial, industrial, and tourism Projects.

We pride ourselves on our comprehensive, integrated planning methodology, the implementation of "state of the art" professional tools, and on its creativity and innovation in meeting varied professional challenges through multi-disciplinary teamwork.

The vast international experience in National Master Plans led the company to establish PLAND, a subsidiary company, focused on preparing national master plans and large-scale urban as well as rural development plans.
