North Shore Congregation Temple
Northshore returned to Yamasaki 40
years after our original design to update
the master plan, renovate and add to this
award winning campus design. The Religious School Expansion includes a new
School Administration Wing, new School
Reception Building, and new Reception
Building Entry for the existing Social Hall
and Chapel Complex.
The Cultural and Religious Center includes a library, an 1000-seat sanctuary,
a religious school with 36 classrooms,
banquet facilities, auditorium and administrative offices.
The Religious School Building Addition
nearly doubles its present capacity.
The existing building will be provided
with new lighting and air conditioning
systems, energy management, ADA
conformance and a new student reception entrance to improve the safety and
convenience of student movements.
The design places the proposed school
addition beneath the present east outdoor play area with its full length exterior
glass wall open to the natural light of a
terraced garden formed by reshaping the
ground contours of the site.
The 20 acre gardens surrounding the
complex have been planned to provide
added parking, illumination, site security
systems and forestry management.
