EDUCATION

Fuchs Mizrachi School

  —Always By Design

ABA Insurance Services aspired for an office design that would attract and retain young talent, improve efficiencies, and bolster their culture. Self-described as “sophisticated, but fun,” ABA looked to retire their aged space to one that felt welcoming, upbeat, and collaborative.

This Modern Orthodox PK-12 day school seeks to reconcile living in a modern world while maintaining traditional Jewish commandments and values. The school is a modern building built with masonry that recalls Jewish building traditions. The proportions of the facade relate to the columns of text in the Torah, so that the building is figuratively “wrapped in Torah”.

The building achieved LEED Silver certification, helped by geothermal and daylight harvesting systems. The building provides abundant natural light, high indoor air quality, and reduced operating costs relating to 41% less water and 37% less energy usage, all while representing the Jewish values of the school.
