Temple Israel of Hollywood, Hollywood, CA

Temple Israel has been a beacon of worship, community, social justice, and Jewish cultural reform since it’s founding in 1926 and as such, the renovation had to subtly reflect this contemporary ideology with a creative and inviting design.  Across from a festively illuminated courtyard with light strings above, and within view of the historic Synagogue, the multipurpose room features a ceiling piece created from CNC cut wooden slats with integrated controllable lighting. Linear fixtures and down-lights light the reception, library and office spaces in recessed and surface mounted versions, providing texture.  In the entrance hallway, metal pendants stand in contrast to the stark spaces, adding a contemporary flair.
