Congregation Anshe Torah / Plano, Texas

A new Temple for the 400 family congregation on the rolling planes outside Plano. The seven acre site is adjacent to a railroad line, car dealership and golf driving range, resulting in an inward focused scheme and creating protected courtyards and controlled views. A water garden in the small court off the sanctuary Bimah provides a shimmering reflections and the quiet sound of water to set the tone for the sanctuary and assures a coherent spiritual experience.

The Master Plan allows for incremental expansion with a strong relationship and connectivity as the congregation grows. The dynamic spiral design creates a strong central focus and encourages incremental growth with a clear and organized relationship.
