This unconventional building is known as the 'Thermometer House' because of the harsh vertical lines of diagonal, slatted windows running down its entire four-story length. It is less stout and massive than other Tel Aviv-Bauhaus buildings of the time, more streamlined and airy. Though this building may appear to be more decorative than other Bauhaus buildings in Tel Aviv, it too is first and foremost a practical, living space. The oddly shaped slanted windows are perfectly aligned with an interior staircase, letting in light throughout the day but not as much heat as open, wide windows.
