Before and After: Temple Beth Sholom

Temple Beth Sholom in Miami Beach is one of the first examples of modern synagogue architecture in America. Designed in the mid-1950’s by renowned architect Percival Goodman, the building played a key role in establishing a new face for burgeoning Jewish communities in the years following World War II. After half a century, this important landmark was in dire need of refurbishing. PKSB led the design effort and worked with a local firm (Beilinson Gomez Architects) to restore the "WOW!" factor that had faded through the years. The process required a careful balance of restoration and innovation. The end result is a design that honors the building’s past, respects its present, and looks brightly to its future.
