Kodrianski & Podlyashuk House

One of adjacent twin buildings, this residence was built in 1922 in the Romantic Style (known in Israel as the Eclectic Style). The impressive duo at 6-8 Yehuda Halevi Street in Tel Aviv were designed by the Jerusalem architects Wilhelm Heker and Eliezer Yelin and are notably prominent in their surroundings until today. Yehuda Halevi Street is one of the most significant streets of historic Tel Aviv, being one of the first five streets in Achuzat Beit and testifies to the expansion of the city and its unification with the Neve Tzedek and Neve Shalom neighborhoods.

Adjacent to the main façade of #8, a set-back courtyard emphasizes the main volume of the stairwell, which accentuates the the entrance to the building. A continuous fence facing the street achieves a uniform effect for both buildings.
The southern façade of the building faces Park Hamesila, a new rail park that spans the distance between Neve Tzedek and Jaffa, extending all the way to the beach. Sporting bicycle paths, walking trails, and vegetation, the park follows the route of the future light rail as well as the historic rail line between Jaffa and Jerusalem.
