The design concept behind the building is to create a synagogue where its construction materializes through a unique design concept that answers the functional, symbolic and environmental requirements. In that sense, the synagogue is designed with 3 elements: a steel structure with diagonal elements that supports the building, a glass façade that gives transparency, luminosity and lightness, and a set of wooden louvers that brings solar control to the interior of the space. This 3 elements generate a three dimensional stained glass, giving natural light to the space and creating a symbolic relationship with the triangular shapes of the David´s Star. This stained glass gets lighted at twilight, when the jewish celebration of Shabbath starts and ends.

The building is at the same time a religious and an institutional one; it houses in a single design solution all the functional necessities such as offices and meeting rooms, and at the same time the more religious activities.

The materials used are concrete in all the walls of the ground floor, for a more abstract and rustic appearance, and over this area two steel structures: one with metal louvers that houses the second floor offices and the other one with wooden louvers that houses the synagogue.
