An Israeli architect is using soundproofed materials to soundproof his apartment building.
Rabbi Menachem Cohen said that soundproof windows and soundproof walls have helped keep his apartments insulated and sound-proofed.
“In the beginning of the year, we put up a soundproof window, then we started to use sound-activated insulation.
Now we put in the soundproof wall, then the sound-isolating material,” Cohen said.
“We put it in the wall of our house.
And now, we are making soundproof doors and windows.
We have a lot of soundproof rooms in our house.”
The building of the new residence in Haifa is a partnership between Haifa’s City Hall and the city’s soundproof building authority, which is funded by the city of Haifa.
Haifa is one of Israel’s most advanced cities and has an overall soundproof rating of “superior.”
The soundproof buildings are designed to keep noise and vibration to a minimum.
Cohen said that he had to make changes after his home became sound-sensitive.
“My apartment is not in a sound-controlled area,” Cohen told the Post.
“I have to put it into a room where sound is very much controlled, and it’s very quiet, but not in an area that I would like to be in.”
Cohen says that the building of his new home will be soundproof with sound-based windows and glass, and sound resistant materials, like polyethylene, to protect his neighbors and the public.
The building is located at the intersection of Tel Aviv University and Haifa University.
The construction of the residence has been in the works for more than a year.
