Crowning Glory for new Synagogue

Work is progressing on a carved roundel to be placed over the Ark at the recently completed Synagogue in South Manchester designed by the practice.

The carving features the crown of King David, based on existing finials on the Torah scrolls within the Ark, with a wreath of vine leaves and grapes, continuing a theme of Produce of The Land used elsewhere in the new building.

AWA worked with the client and carver Roy Martin to develop the designs.
