This typical Arab home got its name from the red plaster used on its walls. This building was probably built before the Wieland villa (which was built in 1902) as part of the Menashiya neighborhood, adjacent to the train station complex. The building serves as an example of the typical building style in the Jaffa area and its two storey version is very common.
The western entryway is accented with chiseled sandstone, such as frames around the symmetrical series of three openings. This element was left un-plastered and constitutes one of the building’s unique features. Two round openings that are also familiar from Arab construction were opened at the front of the building as well, and used for ventilation and for funneling hot air outside.
