From the 2023 Educational Interiors Showcase: Solomon Schechter Day School, Machar Campaign Renovation

Nov. 17, 2023
The project was recognized as an outstanding design in the Interior Renovation category.

As part of its “Machar” (Hebrew for “Tomorrow”) campaign, Solomon Schechter Day School sought to transform dated and underused spaces on its Northbrook, Illinois, campus to support its mission to deliver academic excellence rooted in the Jewish faith. The expansion of the main entry lobby creates a welcoming, active hub for learners, educators and visitors. The new design increases natural light, pre-function space and informal areas for connection and gathering. The (Beit Knesset) worship center, used as a multifunctional space, balances warmth and spirituality with technology-rich resources to accommodate large gatherings.
