The Center for Design, Media and Technology was built in 1887 as a leper asylum by the Protestant community of Jerusalem. The designer of the structure was German architect Conrad Schick. In 1950, the site was purchased by the Jewish National Fund, and continued to serve its original purpose until 2000. In 2009, the building was handed over to the municipality of Jerusalem city, for the purpose of converting it into an interdisciplinary center. The project of restoring and converting the building started in 2011, under the management of the Jerusalem Development Authority and Ran Wolf Ltd. In 2013, the impressive historic building was opened to the public as a center for design, media and technology. In its new purpose, the Hansen House is used for cultural activities, including exhibitions, film screenings and advance fabrication labs.
