Templo Birkat Itzjak

Intimate lighting for spiritual experience

The lighting concept for the Marina Temple aims to achieve a contemporary look and a high visual comfort for the pray and study of the Torah, without losing the essence of tradition, respect and liturgy that must be perceived in these religious buildings.

A steel mesh incorporated into a glass, which also acts as the border of the area, was illuminated with flush light to produce the appropriate contrast to achieve this ambience of privacy but at the same time to allow women to see the Rabbi in the lower level.

A lighting control system was incorporated to select the appropriate scene for each situation and to allow the liturgy experience to reach its maximum state. The architectural materials used were wood and stones of warm colors.
