As is true of most museums, the centerpiece of the Museum of Jewish Heritage is its exhibition space. However, the museum also contains large spaces for performances and special exhibits as well. Cerami’s design team worked closely with the project’s architect and engineer to create a space that allowed for quiet reflection, as well as interactive exhibits and performances.
The museum’s location, directly next to a high-rise residential building, posed a challenge to Cerami. The design team had to ensure that all mechanical and ductwork units on the museum’s roof achieved noise standard levels and created a quiet environment both inside the museum and outside.
Within the museum, Cerami’s design team recommended appropriate surface finishes for a number of different spaces in addition to detailing the layout of ductwork and location for numerous mechanical units.
