Ohel Jakob Synagogue

The dominant design element of the synagogue is the cladding of the glass cube, outfitted with a specially GKD manufactured bronze spiral mesh. These mesh spirals were broadened forming equilateral triangles so that when the sun hits the bronze spiral mesh veil, the building is enveloped in a warm glow.
