The Richmond Jewish Community Center


The Weinstein Jewish Community Center on Monument Avenue in Richmond remained occupied during all phases of the 100,000 SF construction of renovations and additions. The additions provided a new family pool, fitness center, preschool classroom, new offices for the Jewish Community Federation of Richmond, and expanded lobby space. Other aspects of this project include classroom and locker room renovations, code upgrades, mechanical system upgrades, and accessibility/life safety improvements. The design features a new central "street" through the middle of the complex assembly of existing buildings. The "street" provides entry from Monument Avenue and the parking area, while serving as a light-filled orientation and gathering space. Accessible, open, flexible spaces and transparency / visibility characterize the renovated center.
