The leaders at the Slifka Center for Jewish Life at Yale University in New Haven, Connecticut, recognized that to better engage with the campus and satisfy programming needs, the building required a major modernization. Additional room was needed; however, zoning placed limits on new construction, so space was added inside wherever possible. Informal socialization, meeting, study and relaxation spaces were developed to make the building more inviting. An underused courtyard was enclosed with walkable terrace skylights. A new hallway provides access to the terrace from the expanded lobby.
