The Saratoga Congregation
The design highlight for the Beth David Congregation in Saratoga is definitely the slanting exterior walls.
This particular backward effect creates a very dynamic energy. The stone chosen was the Jerusalem Gold, quarried in Israel and hand chiseled to obtain a rough finish.
To achieve the “solid block” look , for the double slanting wall, custom wood templates were made and sent to the supplier. This had to be done in order for them to perfectly place each piece when carving the critical corners. There were some construction difficulties of course but, in the end, the pieces all fit together like a jigsaw puzzle.
