A Model Tenement
26 Wingate St., Yad Eliyahu
Saturday, May 16th, 10:00-13:00 and 16:00-18:00  
Architect: Tzeela Zuaretz, 2008
A visit at a tenement building apartment that was built in 1949 for Jewish soldiers who served in the British Brigade (that was part of a large-scale project carried out by the Engineering Department of the Tel Aviv Municipality, headed by the engineer, Yaakov Ben Sira). The apartment was renovated by Zuaretz in 2008, adapting it to the needs of her family. The modest renovation relied on the initial blueprint and highlights the original qualities of the apartment. It also demonstrates how easy it is to convert small and unassuming tenement apartments, which were built hastily for the new immigrants who came to Israel in large numbers after the country`s establishment, into apartments that are pleasant to live in even 65 years later.
