Temple B'nai Chaim is an 8,000 sf addition to an existing facility in Georgetown, CT. The design's simplicity and pre-engineered structure allowed the project to be completed at very little cost to the congregation. Similarly, the furniture and judaica was designed on a shoestring budget. The Ark design uses simple hollow-core doors with gold, silver, and copper-leaf arranged in an abstract pattern that evokes the biblical burning bush. The custom reading table design emphasizes form without relying on high-end finishes. The chapel's simple, austere design allows the woodlands beyond to become part of the reflective worship space.
