Entrance to the Liebling Haus

The center of the White City

The mission of the center is to preserve the heritage of the White City and the buildings of the Bauhaus style. The Liebling Haus hosts various exhibitions and lectures by local and foreign speakers. The main permanent exhibition introduces visitors to the White City.

The building has galleries, workplaces, a research laboratory, a cafe and an ecological garden inspired by the Garden City according to the Geddes Plan - the first general plan of Tel Aviv, developed in 1925-1929 by Sir Patrick Geddes.


The building was designed in the form of two three-storey blocks, which were interconnected through a stairwell. During the design, natural air circulation was provided due to specific windows and layout.

The facade is located parallel to the street and the sea, in accordance with the principles of the Garden City according to the Geddes Plan. The long and narrow balconies on the facade are a local adaptation of Le Corbusier's ribbon windows, which serve to darken and cool residential premises.
