Description

Beit Hasofer, a luxurious boutique residentiel project adjacent to the legendary Hebrew Writers Association building on Tel Aviv’s Kaplan street, footsteps away from the city’s major cultural and entertaiment hubs. 

Eight floors, 23 units of various sizes and floor plans. Spacious elegant lobby with stylish screen walls and four-story towering ceilings. A one-way door leading to the adjacent historical building. Two state-of-the-art elevators including a Shabbat elevator. Public areas for the use of residents, including: a wine room, resident’s club and a special storage room for bicycles; an underground automatic parking lot and private storage. At the front of the building, a small, quaint square, inspired by Tel Aviv’s early days, blending with the street while creating a private passageway for residents. Modern architectural design taking its inspiration from the world of books, with hints to bookshelves and browsing through the pages of an open book.

Historical preservation and a tribute to the Hebrew writer 

Part of the project is the preservation and reconstruction of the Shaul Tchernichovsky Hebrew Writers House, a building designed by architect Dov Carmi in 1957. The preservation, led by architect Giora Solar, will return the four-story building to the days of its glorious history, by combining elements from the past with technology and modernity. Renovations will include the association’s offices, public library and the construction of a large auditorium which will host literary events. Treasures from the past, including the desk of the late Shaul Tchernichovsky, will be put on display for the general public. 

Building for Préserva – Shaul Tchernichovsky Beit Hasofer (Writer’s House) 

Beit Hasofer, the home of the Hebrew Writers and Poets Association in Israel, which was founded in 1921 by Chaim Nachman Bialik, is located alongside Journalists House, Farmers House and other cultural and public institutions erected on land of Templer Sarona. The original building, dedicated in 1957, was designed by Dov Carmi, one of the most important architects in Tel Aviv and Israel. Carmi, an Israel Prize laureate in architecture, designed many buildings including the original Cameri Theater building on Dizengoff Street, the Histadrut buildings, Heichal Hatarbut (currently known as the Charles Bronfman Auditorium), the Hadar-Dafna building, the EL AL building and a number of important structures of the Hebrew University in Jerusalem. The building – which includes offices, meeting rooms, a small auditorium and a large one – was initially built as a three-story structure, to which a fourth story was added. An additional auditorium was added in the 1960s. COne large room is dedicated to Tchernichovksy, the poet for whom it is named. In the past it housed the only archive for preserving the works of Hebrew writers, which was later moved to Beit Ariella for lack of space.
