בית הזכוכית
בשנים 1941-1938 בנה האדריכל תיאודור מנקס את הבניין כבית דירות למגורי מהנדסים בריטים ואמריקאים, שהגיעו לעבודה בבתי הזיקוק.
הבניין, שנבנה בסגנון ה"באוהאוס" נחשב ליצירה אדריכלית ייחודית ומקורית בארץ. תכנונו החדשני כלל שימוש בלבני זכוכית להחדרת אור בהיר וטבעי וכן שטחים לשימוש משותף: בריכת שחייה בחצר ומגרש טניס על הגג.
בית הזכוכית בולט עד היום בשל מקוריות תכנונו.

The Glass House, built during the years 1938-1941, was designed by Architect Theodore Mankes as an apartments building for British and American engineers who came to work in Haifa’s refineries. It is considered one of the most unique and original architectural creations of the international Bauhaus style in the country.
Its original and noval design included the use of glass bricks to enable clear, bright natural light to penetrate as well as areas for common use: a swimming pool in the yard and a tennis court on the roof.
The Glass House is remarkable until this very day for its original design.
