Bukharian Jewish Center

An existing one-story automobile dealership was demolished to make way for a new synagogue. We designed a multi-level sanctuary space, featuring an Ezrat Nashim (Women’s Gallery) on the second-floor balcony, centered around the Bimah. The facade design was carefully crafted in consultation with the clients to reflect the synagogue’s ethnic heritage and iconic features. The exterior walls were clad with Jerusalem stones to symbolize the Zionist prophecy.
