An apartment house at #8 Nahalat Binyamin
One of the most extravagant structures on Nahalat Binyamin was built in 1922 (at #8). Known as the Palm Tree House (Beit Hadekel) it is a terrific example of fancy Art Nouveau design. Architect Y.Z. Tabachnik was intent on creating a unique Jewish type of architecture for buildings in the Land of Israel, and even asked for his style to be copyrighted. Indeed, when he sent his plan in for approval, he wrote: All rights reserved, Original Jewish Style.
