It was commissioned by Muhammed el-Rachim (Abu Hassan), who was a prominent resident of Jaffa in the early part of the 20th century. It was designed by the architect Yitzhak Rappaport, a personal friend of Abu Hassan, who was asked to design the interior in an Oriental style. Reflecting the spirit of the period, the villa was designed as a totality, namely as a whole and meticulous creation that incorporated all the furnishings and finishing details. The house still contains original Art Deco furniture, items made by master carpenters, and other architectural elements characteristic of the period, such as the banister. The walls are decorated with works of contemporary French art.
Tours (in Hebrew) will be led by the architect Oded Rappaport, whose father, Yitzhak Rappaport, designed the building and by Paule Rakower.

After it became a bank branch, the building was decorated with frescos, marble floors and elegantly crafted carpentry.
