Progressive Synagogue Hove
Rebuild and regeneration of a beautifully crafted building in collaboration with the Synagogue’s congregation.
The existing building, originally a 19th century gymnasium, was converted into a Progressive synagogue in 1937. Within a designated Conservation Area but not historically listed, the proposal for rebuilding the synagogue consists of a timber frame construction for the external west and south walls with new roofs following the existing pitches and repair works to the existing trusses. A new steel frame was erected internally to create the new floor and wall spaces.
