Temple Beth El
This Conservative congregation in Stamford, Connecticut commissioned a Planning Study to explore renovating their circa 1970 facility. The proposed design improvements include reconfiguring lobbies and gathering spaces and expanding the chapel to provide more seats for multi-purpose use. New finishes, more casual meeting spaces and a more open floor plan will make the temple more welcoming. A new elevator will also make it more accessible. The scope of work calls for the replacement of the deteriorated copper and wood cladding, the addition of windows to bring natural light into the interior and the redesign of the main entrance to make it more inviting.
