The building in Sderot Masaryk was a project involving the international preservation of a Bauhaus building. It included strengthening the frame against earthquakes. It was also one of the first projects of its kind to be carried out in Tel Aviv.

The spectacular Bauhaus style preservation project located at 6-8 Masaryk Square in Tel Aviv involved 2 connected buildings that were surrounded by courtyards in the bustling center of the White City. Although the buildings are connected, each building has a unique and separate staircase and a completely different internal structure.

The reconstruction architect of the project was Nitsa Smoak. In her position as the conservation architect at the Tel Aviv Municipality, she initiated the conservation plan. It was the first project she carried out after her retirement from the Tel Aviv Municipality.

The project focuses on the preservation of the courtyards and their integration within the restored buildings. In the backyard, a glass elevator shaft was integrated into the garden so that when the elevator is in use one gets the feeling of escaping from the city into nature for a few moments.
