City of David

The Givati yard is part of the City of David archaeological site. It was named following a terrorist attack on October 15, 1986, against the soldiers of the Givati Brigade who had just completed their swearing-in ceremony at the Western Wall plaza. For years, the area served as a parking lot for visitors to the Western Wall until it became an excavation site.

The lighting consultant Micha Margalit breathed life into the site in the “Hallelujah” Sound and Light Show.

In this complex project, we provided the entire lighting system, installed and programmed by Danor personnel, which included hundreds of spotlights, all connected to a system controlled by a non-contact Compulite – Vector Wing multimedia system.

The topographic challenges and the fact that this is an outdoor project required the company to consider the dust and severe weather conditions of Jerusalem. The lighting fixtures were manufactured with special LED colors to emphasize the elements at the site and all the systems were integrated into the archeological site by painting the fixtures.
