Synagogue interior JLP01_10_48151

LIBERAL JEWISH SYNAGOGUE, ST JOHNS WOOD ROAD, ST JOHNS WOOD, CITY OF WESTMINSTER, GREATER LONDON. The chuppah on the bimah, with the doors of the ark and ner tamid beyond, in the Liberal Jewish Synagogue.
Laing was awarded the contract for the redevelopment of the interior of the Liberal Jewish Synagogue in November 1989. The exterior portico built in 1911 was retained though the rest of the building had been demolished in 1988. The octagonal sanctuary contains a lower seating area, a gallery and an extended sanctuary behind panelling, which can be used to alter the size of the sanctuary depending on the congregation. The ark doors are made of metals set in bronze frames; it was designed as the focus of the wall. The interior of the synagogue was completed in January 1991
