Architectural Arts & Sculpture 15. Guild Sourcebooks
Morpurgo Architects designed Temple Beth Or’s inspiring synagogue. We created the original sanctuary, known for its beauty, serenity and elegance, and years later, we were asked to continue our vision.
Our firm served as both architect and construction manager for the Temple’s renovation, which is distinguished by walls of Jerusalem stone, bronze doors and magnificent sculpture that we helped develop in collaboration with its brilliant creator Rob Fisher.
Symbolically, on the front façade the vertical wood planes are contoured to resemble a menorah, while on the interior the lines of the ceiling above the Bimah (altar) reflect the Rabbi’s raised hands, as she blesses the Congregation.
