During our All Congregation Renewal Celebration Champagne Brunch on Sunday February 1st, Martin Davidson of Diamond Schmitt Architects unveiled a series of brand new full-colour renderings and the latest floor plans for our new campus. These renderings are absolutely spectacular and give us a sense of what various spaces within our new HBT could look like when finished. We use the word “could” because they are artist conceptions only, with the final detailed design decisions still to be made. But even so, we’re quite sure you’ll find them inspiring.
Have a good close look at how our Central Atrium with its “living wall” will become an inviting gathering space and a gateway, interconnecting all aspects of Temple life. See how our Philip Smith Congregational Hall will transform from a welcoming room for daytime lectures and public gatherings to an elegant space for simchas and entertainment … and don’t miss the new windows along the west wall that will allow for natural light! Check out our brand new Family Chapel, located in the former Eisendrath Auditorium, and again pay special attention to the natural light streaming in from the east windows. This is a multi-use space that can also easily transform itself for smaller banquet or simcha celebrations. There are also renderings of our new Library, 3rd floor Social Hall and various views of our Atrium, both interior and exterior. We’ve also included the floor plans to date, as well as the initial landscaping plans, to give you the broadest sense of how our new Holy Blossom will look, feel and function, day to day.
