Liberal Jewish Community

High performing solar shading for a unique building

On the edge of The Hague's center, the Liberal Jewish Community resides in quite a unique building. It actually consists of three buildings in one: the old Portuguese Synagogue - one of the oldest in The Netherlands - the offices of the Jewish Community and in between a courtyard covered by a glass roof.  This "Glass Hall" is used for conferences, weddings and concerts.
