Meir Arison House

Engel 7 was originally a three-story residential building. It has been meticulously preserved, including the shell, lobby, and all the original elements. The building has hardly undergone any changes and has maintained its unique 'H' shape and lush green inner courtyard. The building's original inhabitants enjoyed this green space, which continues to be loved by today's residents. In preservation, two floors have been added to make it a five-story building with 12 housing units, redesigned layouts, an underground parking lot, and an elevator.

Engel 7

Ribbon windows, a typical International Style feature, are horizontal cuts across entire façades, allowing interior spaces to be equally lit and offering unobstructed outside views. Whereas in Europe, windows of the International style were large to allow an influx of light, these oversized windows in Tel Aviv would allow too much sun and heat to enter buildings. As such, Instead of one long window, several windows are embedded within a horizontal architectural element as seen at Engel 7.
