The new center incorporates three historic structures–two late eighteenth-century Federal-style houses and the chalet-style Froebel Hall (1878)–into an expanded facility that provides Brown RISD Hillel with more than 25,000 square feet for assembly, student activity, and administrative spaces. The center is designed to defer to the old structures and to be congruent with the residential scale and architectural character of the surrounding neighborhood.
The facility also preserves the historic identity and essential integrity of the three existing building, provides worship access for all denominations, introduces universal access to all function rooms, and re-establishes the garden and terraces as open spaces suitable for outdoor functions and meditation.
