North Shore Congregation Israel
The North Shore Congregation Israel is a historic building sited on Lake Michigan and is world renowned for its original architecture. OKW designed a new Education Wing, new Family Education Center, and renovations to the existing educational facilities at North Shore Congregation Israel. The new Education Wing doubles the amount of existing teaching area and incorporates classroom, administration and collaborative learning areas.
The project included a complete renovation of the existing teaching areas. The new Family Education Center (FEC) incorporates a large multi-function, multi-media learning and conferencing room, classrooms, and offices. In addition, the FEC will provide the congregation with a new 6,000 square foot roof terrace and a multi level exterior amphitheater. A cohesive architectural, interior design, signage and wayfinding design was provided.
