The Zachs Hillel House
Boston, Massachusetts based architects Leers Weinzapfel Associates, have designed the Zachs Hillel House at Trinity College in Hartford, Connecticut. . The new Hillel House is one of a group of cultural houses, the building is located on the edge of the campus adjacent to an urban residential neighborhood. Activities include social gatherings, educational seminars, religious services and regular Sabbath dinners, allowing students to celebrate their particular cultural identity within the larger campus experience. The front of the house facing the campus is more open and public, while the rear of the house facing the neighborhood is more enclosed and private. With its dynamic roofline and inviting main spaces, the house welcomes Jewish students and the Trinity community, and creates a positive and energetic presence in the surrounding neighborhood.
