Temple Beth Elohim
Wellesley, MA

This synagogue for Temple Beth Elohim on the site of their existing facility features a flexible sanctuary which will accommodate up to 1000 during High Holy Days, while still providing an intimate setting for 400 during weekly services. The temple is sensitively sited to take full advantage of the surrounding wooded hillside and nearby wetlands. Transparency connects the front and rear courtyards to the major interior gathering spaces including the sanctuary and Social Hall.
