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.”
