Liebling House – White City Center, Tel Aviv

Liebling House – White City Center, Tel Aviv

Part of Tel Aviv's Bauhaus-style modernist heritage, the recently restored multi-family house by Tony and Max Liebling dates to 1936 and was most notable for being the first building in Israel to use elongated recessed balconies, an adaptation of Le Corbusier's strip windows. Apart from emphasizing the horizontal style, the narrow intervals between the building's parapet and overhang have the added practical effect of screening out the heat of the Mediterranean sun. The timbered pergola, a design element frequently seen in Jerusalem, is quite unusual for Tel Aviv.

Inside, the apartment building retains its original appearance; only the ground-floor room had its walls removed, in order to make room for the permanent exhibition and children's workshop area. Such apartments, with their high ceilings, opening to the shaded 'ribbon balconies', are normally hard to find today, as in most cases, the interior spaces have been changed beyond recognition.

The free audio app takes visitors on a self-guided tour exploring dozens of architectural elements and details (including the well-preserved – and extremely functional! – sanitary rooms), while also touching on the building's personal, cultural, economic, political, and social aspects as narrated by professionals, city residents, and members of the families who once lived here.

Completing the experience are the interesting art installations, the wonderful roof terrace, and the pretty café (plus garden) with its tempting delicacies – so if you care for building conservation, architecture, art, history, rooftop vistas, or even food, the Liebling House is certainly a place for you to visit.
