Jewish Federation of Southern Arizona

Posted: February 27, 2019 | Projects

This 19,118 square-foot  facility was built at a cost of $180.66 per square foot (adjusted).  The square ceiling “tent” structure over the entrance lobby is symbolic of the biblical welcoming tent. Faced with unfinished wood, the ceiling is reminiscent of historic Eastern European wood synagogue structures, and the subtle porcelain floor tile evokes the earthen tent floor. Jerusalem stone veneer travels from the building exterior into the lobby, appearing to be ruins of an ancient building. The wood ceiling became a fitting background for a local sculptor’s dramatic work of handcrafted glass and metal. The facility has LED lighting throughout, with specialty lighting to highlight meaningful art pieces displayed in the building.
