Interior Chapel with Custom Ark and Reading Table

Temple B'nai Chaim

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.
