The Jewish cultural center “Zhukovka” was built by FJC – The Federation of Jewish Communities of Russia.
The Center is located in the city of Moscow, a short distance from the Residence of the President of Russia Vladimir Putin. The Center was inaugurated in the Hanukkah Eve, on the first of December 2015.
The Center was built at the place of an old synagogue, which was not able anymore to accommodate the number of worshipers who wanted to attend it. The architectural design was done by the British architectural company Gensler. The emphasis was to design a modern multifunctional building and yet to maintain a Jewish traditional appearance. The project was funded by private donors and contains: a synagogue, a Mikvah, a Banquet Hall, a hotel and a kindergarten.
The requirement was to make an architectural lighting project which would flatter to the architectural lines of the building.
Our design agency created a few Led Architectural lighting designs for the customer to choose from.
After the approval of the design by the customer, our Engineering Department characterized the lighting fixtures, control system and made a detailed execution plan.
Our installation and supervision teams were on Israel-Russia airline for a very intense 4 months in order to accomplish the project on schedule.
The opening event was attended by many distinguished personalities, among them:
Chief Rabbai of Israel – Rabbi David Lau
Chief Rabbai of Russia – Rabbi Berl Lazar
President of FJC – Rabbi Alexander Boroda
The Governor of Moscow District – Andrei Vorobiev
Moreover, the internal lighting project of the Jewish Center was carried out by Divolight.
All of the indoor lighting fixtures are DALI controlled.
