Sid Jacobson Jewish Community Center

Sid Jacobson Jewish Community Center

We are working with SJJCC to develop a master plan for their 90,000 SF facility in East Hills, NY. The organization, which provides vital services to surrounding communities is experiencing explosive growth, yet faces physical constraints to expansion at their primary location. Loci is proposing a series of strategies, including vertical expansion, the insertion of mezzanine levels, a roof top playground and the renovation of sub-optimal spaces, to deliver an expansion of program space, support spaces and parking. In addition, Loci designed a new double height entrance space which draws visitors into a dynamic interior “plaza” at the heart of the Center, which will create a vibrant gathering space at the heart of the Sid Jacobson campus.
