Temple Beth El / Great Neck, New York

A large Reform Congregation was built in multiple phases and architectural styles, a diverse complex, creating a confusing image, inefficient and difficult circulation pattern with many spaces inaccessible for the handicapped, dated and failing mechanical systems, no clear drop-off or vehicular entry. There was also a need to accommodate expanding programs for new functional requirements including growing educational and social activities. Multiple design ideas and strategies were presented and discussed. Strong and exciting concepts were discovered and explored, yielding a powerful Master Plan.
