Brighton Dome ticket office refurbishment
At a time when we are undergoing a major refurbishment of two of our historic venues, we’ve been delighted to work with ZST architects on transforming what we had thought was a fairly limited space into something both beautiful and functional, and which sensitively integrates their designs into our existing Grade 1 listed buildings.

Judges Citation - Brighton & Hove Progressive Synagogue 

“An imaginative, inspirational and contemporary refurbishment of a former gymnasium to create a welcoming multi-purpose space for religious services, festivals and special commemorations, principally for the local Jewish community while welcoming all faiths.

The judges particularly liked the clever use of natural light using roof lights and the innovative use of subtle tints in the light shafts to complement the colours of the modern light fittings.

Also of note was the sliding wooden screen in the Sanctuary which conceals the Ark. This used long strips of wood in rainbow hues to represent inclusion and diversity. Attention to detail extended to the well-crafted contemporary lecterns in beech and walnut which complemented elements of the design in the Sanctuary, and elsewhere the integration of old elements with new such as the display of old stained glass windows and mosaics.

A truly community-led project working within a restricted budget.”

The team at ZSTa helped by creating a learning environment where I am able work alongside very talented architects who patiently helped me acquire practical hands on skills that will benefit me in the future.

ZSTa is where innovation and excellence are achieved and It gives me great privilege to be able to be a part of the team

I co-ordinated a project to redevelop the Brighton and Hove progressive Synogogue in Brighton. The Synogogue committee interviewed 9 companies and ZSTA stood head and shoulders above the competition . They have proven to be true to their word being commercially astute which combined with their green credentials have given us the building we were almost to frightened to believe we would ever complete .
ZSTA went the extra mile to ensure we retained as much of the original design as was commercially viable and it has been a pleasure to work with such a professional team
