EMANUEL SYNAGOGUE COMMUNITY MASTERPLAN

PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
This project involved the reworking of a large existing community site, to allow for better integration within all aspects. The site contains a heritage listed Synagogue and is located in a Heritage conservation area of Sydney. The project brief included the rationalization of the site to create an overall masterplan scheme which allowed for new and expanded community needs. From this masterplan sprung the design development of various buildings such as a new Community facility, incorporating the reception, library, counselling room, administration and professional offices; a new Preschool-Child Care for 60 children, a new Sanctuary for maximum use of 550 people, and the adaptation of existing buildings to house ancillary uses. All areas will be coordinated with courtyard areas, gardens and underpinned by sustainable environmental principles.
