Wilshire Boulevard Temple
Completion: 2013
Los Angeles, California
61,000 square feet

The Sanctuary was restored including all original historic finishes, fixtures, and seating. There was significant deterioration of the plaster dome in the Sanctuary. Efflorescence was notable. These deficiencies were repaired and the Sanctuary has been seismically upgraded to include new shear walls and roof reinforcing. New HVAC systems are served through the underfloor plenum and audio visual cameras mounted from the balcony position, and choir loft. Acoustic considerations have guided the infrastructure design. Speakers and lighting have been installed in niches to mitigate their visual impact on the historic space. The historic light fixtures have been restored as well as the art glass windows. The Bimah has been sympathetically altered to provide for both accessibility and functionality for the Temple congregation.
