Peres Peace House
Peres Center for Peace was built on the seashore of Jaffa. The building is a unique structure designed by architect Massimiliano Fuksas and local architect Yoav Messer . The 7000 sqm lot is located on one of the most beautiful areas in Tel Aviv-Jaffa – at the Jaffa beach. It is enclosed by an old Muslim cemetery on the south border, Kedem street, Kidron street and the beach. The building was built on the top part of the lot, surrounded by a public park - "Peace Park", falling into the sea. The building and the park will be open to the public and to the Peres Center for Peace's Coexistence Arab-Jewish public activities.
