We are avid attendees of the annual “Houses From Within” festival in Jerusalem, which took place this past weekend. Except that, instead of going inside, we have a habit of getting the scoop on structures and places from the outside.

The festival’s aim is to open up the doors to locations that are usually private. These include architectural masterpieces, like a luxurious apartment near Mahaneh Yehuda renovated by architect Matti Rosenshine, and the Zik family abode in Baka, as well as behind-the-scenes tours of more public facilities, such as the Bible Lands Museum, the Jerusalem Theater and the reimagined Hansen Hospital, which has been transformed from a shelter for lepers (really) to an art and technology design center.
