Westchester Reform Temple

Our design for the 12,000SF Sanctuary and 14,000sf Religious School and Study Center for Westchester Reform Temple established a West to East axis of increasing privacy and spirituality: from campus and world to community and social hall, to sanctuary and worship, to a spiritual garden and contemplation.

The memorial garden, lined with bronze yarzheit screens, is centered in the new lobby, connecting existing and new buildings, the past and present, external and internal light.
