Mercaz Shimshon: The Blaustein Hall
The Blaustein Hall represents the central area of Mercaz Shimshon and was designed by international award-winning architect Moshe Safdie. Mercaz Shimshon is situated adjacent to Beit Shmuel and was opened in 2001. The hall is located on the building’s roof and represents a unique architectural work. It is covered by a large glass dome with a panoramic window offering a spectacular view of the historic and moving scenery of Jerusalem’s Old City with the Jaffa Gate and the Tower of David at its center.
The hall’s extraordinary glass ceiling is of varying height and reaches up to 12 meters. It consists of a number of geometric spaces and arches interlocking at different heights. The hall’s area comprises about 400 square meters and has no pillars.
Events taking place in the hall can accommodate up to 350 guests seated around tables. The hall’s front area features glass doors leading out onto a terrace with an open panorama offering a view of the Tower of David; it can accommodate an additional 120 persons.
Private and business functions at the Blaustein Hall combine an authentic and exciting Jerusalem experience with a complete culinary pleasure.
