Pair of Centerbrook Designs Honored

CENTERBROOK, Conn. – Centerbrook Architects & Planners’ projects for Mystic Seaport Museum and The Temple-Tifereth Israel have recently earned design honors.

The Thompson Exhibition Building at Connecticut's Mystic Seaport Museum was recognized at the Connecticut Green Building Council Awards on Oct. 4 with the Public/Institutional Award of Merit. The Thompson Building, which opened in the fall of 2016, features a number of sustainable aspects, including a robust geothermal heating and cooling system.

This is the third design award bestowed to the Thompson Building, which was also recently featured in ArchDaily’s 100 Best Wood Projects in the U.S. list.

Located in the Cleveland, Ohio, suburb of Beachwood, The Temple-Tifereth Israel earned an Award of Merit at the Illumination Engineering Society’s 45th Annual Illumination Awards. Centerbrook teamed with Atelier Ten for the lighting design.

The Temple-Tifereth project, a nearly 70,000-square-foot addition and renovation highlighted by a new 300-seat domed chapel, was also completed in the fall of 2016.
