The Quarter of Bat Galim was designed at the beginning of the 20th century by architect Richard Kaufman in the spirit of the European concept City - Garden. This concept was formulated by the utopian philosopher Howard Ibenezra in London at the end of the 19th century. Kaufman - a Jew born in Frankfurt, left a huge mark on the architecture of Israel, primarily by his commitment to the ideas of the City of Garden, which were reflected not only in the neighborhoods of Haifa and its suburbs, but also in more than six hundred agricultural settlements. The most vivid example of such a settlement, which almost certainly embodies Howard’s idea of a centric settlement, is Mosh Naalal, in which Moshe Dayan was born and raised. In the Bat Galim quarter, Kaufman designed not only the streets and the location of houses, but also Bat Galim Avenue on which we are located.
The building at the corner of Bat Galim Avenue and Jonathan Street was built as a private home for the Cohen family in 1937. Its two sides are closed at an angle of almost 60 degrees, one side is two-story and the other is three-story. Translated with Google Translate
