Located on 49 acres, all but five of which are wetlands, this 30,000 SF temple building consists of two major wings: one for religious ceremonies and social events, and a second for educational purposes. Served by a linear lobby, the east facing sanctuary and social hall can be used separately or opened as one space. The social hall can be further subdivided into three smaller rooms, each directly accessible from the lobby. Clad in brick, the sanctuary and social hall are provided with large curved roof monitors and generous window areas that admit natural light deep into the interior.
