Ladies’ Mikvah in Edgware

Edgware and District Mikvah Committee

1301

The Mikvah is a ritual immersion bath for which precise design conditions must be met, with great implications for the building form and it’s services.

Here, the sloping site has been utilised to resolve these requirements.

The building’s high front elevation denotes the entrance, whilst the roof sloping down to the rear acts as the essential rainwater catchment area and conceals the lower level immersion pool.

The building was designed, built in 1989, and fitted out in close detailed negotiation with the Client and user Committee.
