White City Tel Aviv
Updated: Mar 15
I just love the white city project!
It is truly exciting to see the old, unique, beautiful, one of a kind buildings from the 30's of the last century coming back to life in the most extravagant way! Can you imagine a better thing than living in a truly unique building that was restored to a modern version of itself, looking like a modern 1935 building with all the benefits that our times now has to offer?
So when you are looking to rent an apartment in Tel Aviv, know that you might end up in one of those amazing, magical, full of history apartments :)
Now, some History :)
Tel Aviv was founded in 1909 and developed as a metropolitan city under the British Mandate in Palestine. The White City was constructed from the early 1930s until the 1950s, based on the urban plan by Sir Patrick Geddes, reflecting modern organic planning principles. The buildings were designed by architects who were trained in Europe where they practiced their profession before immigrating. They created an outstanding architectural ensemble of the Modern Movement in a new cultural context.
Obviously, those buildings got old! But they are so special and beautiful, that Tel Aviv city hall decided to go on a huge project and preserve those buildings to an exact version of themselves as they used to be 100 years ago, and that gives me goosebumps all over!! I just love it. Now you can walk around the city and just see those unbelievably beautiful creatures all over Tel Aviv :)
I have a verity of apartments for rent and for sale in those beautiful Bauhaus buildings :)
