Construction Update: Daughters of Israel

August 31, 2018

The Brighton Mikvah is framed and nearly weather tight, beneath a gently pitched roof (so formed to gather rainwater for the internal immersion pools). The high humidity of the internal uses required the selection of an exterior-applied closed-cell spray foam insulation to manage the seasonal dew point.

 

The entry corner is anchored by a rough-cut masonry, selected to evoke Jerusalem Limestone, and convey a sense of quiet ceremony for the building's users.

Complex formwork were constructed to satisfy rabbinical requirements for the immersion pools, with integral channels, retention wells, and pools all cast in a single, monolithic pour.
