Sephardic Temple Tifareth Israel synagogue and school  Los Angeles, CA     In a community rich in religious tradition and architecture, the Sephardic Temple is considered a landmark building. The exterior design is an articulation of the interior spaces, each with their own arched entrances. When combined with the monolithic texture of split face concrete block and burlap rubbed joints, it creates an image reflective of Sephardic Mediterranean heritage.

The three story 42,000 sq.ft. structure sits above a three level 45,000 sq.ft., 250 car subterranean garage. The building houses an 850 seat traditional sanctuary with a central bemah, a 150 seat chapel, social hall with a traditional garden, museum, library, a twenty classroom school surrounding an atrium at the third level, clergy and administrative offices, and a caretaker's apartment.
