Ethiopian Community Congregation Hall

Incorporating otherness manifests itself in the conceptual, design and realization of the project. This ‘trait’ ¬†inspires the overall experience of the visitor and reassures his sense of place.

A Physical extension to an Ethiopian synagogue replacing the traditional temporary structure for congregating, In an environment estranged to the Ethiopian scenery the building reinforces tradition through a system of confining walls.

Through or by means of a wall comprised and embedded with colorful windows of orange, yellow, green and heavenly blue two spaces (the outdoor and indoor) are united and separated. A color scheme found in traditional Ethiopian garments lights the spirit of those engaged in sustaining a way of life respectful to their ancestors.
