Kol Emeth – Merit Award

Congregation Kol Emeth’s new home fosters its community’s religious practice while also embracing the natural world as a source of spiritual wellbeing. Three interwoven structures contain a sanctuary, classrooms, administrative and multi-purpose areas, and a native garden. The indoor and outdoor spaces flow together seamlessly to physically and visually connect congregants with their surroundings. Kol Emeth is the first LEED Platinum synagogue to also be a Net Zero Energy and Net Zero Water Building for irrigation.

“Well detailed without being fussy. A beautiful building marrying a highly successful sustainable approach with materials creating rich, layered, textured spaces.”
