H3 produced a series of schematic design documents exploring the complete renovation of the Kane Street Synagogue in Brooklyn and possible expansion of the Goldman Education Center. With a total cost of $9 million, the work was organized to complete several smaller renovations over time using the set of schematic design documents for decades to come. With the sanctuary as the only component of the building that required updating for ADA and code compliance, work began with a focus on this area as a basis for the entire facility.
Totaling $2.5 million, the goal of renovating the sanctuary was not only to upgrade, but to also breathe new life into the space used for prayer, reflection, and study. The scope of work includes the design of a new set of movable pews, carpeting, structurally stable choir loft, Bimah and Amud, stair, men’s and women’s restrooms, finishes, and electrical upgrades and lighting along with working with consultants on a new fire suppression system, AV, and radiator refurbishment.
