Mount Sinai Hospital Interfaith Chapels
Studio A+T was commissioned by Mount Sinai Hospital to upgrade their places of worship within their main campus. Originally comprised of a Synagogue, and a non-denomination space serving Muslim and other faiths, Mount Sinai felt the need to provide a more specific design that better served the different religions and beliefs.
Studio A+T managed to design 3 different distinctive spaces:
- The synagogue, being the more independent of the spaces, received a cosmetic renovation that included a new mechitza, and Ark for Torah scrolls and storage area for religious books.
- The Mosque, with a Mihrab oriented towards Mecca, ablution area, prayer rugs and shoe storage.
- The Chapel, that could pose as a meeting space for any faith, it comprised of a pew area, a prayer space and an Altar.
