Contemporary Jewish Museum TEECOM

OverviewContemporary Jewish Museum

The 63,000 sf facility marries many of the character-defining features of the original substation with bold contemporary spaces, emanating a powerful connection between tradition and innovation. The design reflects the Museum’s mission to celebrate Jewish culture, history, art, and ideas within the context of 21st-century perspectives. From the outside, the extension is most remarkable for its unique shape, as well as its skin: a vibrant blue metallic steel, which changes color depending on the time of day, weather, or one’s vantage point.

Contemporary Jewish Museum TEECOM’s Contribution

TEECOM provided audiovisual, network, voice, and telecommunications design for the Contemporary Jewish Museum for both the administrative and exhibit sides of the buildings. For museum visitors, TEECOM designed a large multipurpose auditorium with large projectors, screens, and monitors. In addition to the visual experience, we implemented sound systems in the lobby, exhibit areas, and gift shop to provide optimal sound for streaming music that enhances the visitor’s experience while touring the museum.

Behind the Walls

In a close collaboration of the entire design TEEm, TEECOM engineered a number of high-design solutions, including troughs inside the flooring that house the majority of the IT infrastructure, a grill system (disguised as an architectural detail) to conceal these troughs, highly complex telecommunications infrastructure in rooms without walls (or without square walls), and a large multipurpose auditorium that features a high-end audiovisual systems.
