בית העם
בית העם, המצוי במרכז העסקים והתרבות של שכונת אפרידר, תוכנן על ידי אדריכלים מדרום-אפריקה. המבנה יועד להתכנסות ציבורית, לפעילות תרבותית ומוזיאון. על אחד מקירותיו, בחצר הפנימית, נבנה תבליט לבנים המציג את דמותו של שמשון המפיל את עמודי המקדש הפלישתי.

כיום משמשת החצר לתצוגה של ממצאים ארכיאולוגיים מאשקלון.

People’s House
The People’s House, located in the business and cultural center of the Afridar neighborhood, was designed by South African architects. The building is intended for public gathering, cultural activities and a museum. On one of its walls, in the inner courtyard, an embossed brick was built showing the image of Samson dropping the pillars of the Philistine temple.

Today, the courtyard is used to display archaeological findings from Ashkelon.
