Chabad House


Austin, Texas



This building was once Austin's premier boarding house when built and was converted to an Orthodox Jewish Community Center through careful historic restoration. The program for the building includes a synagogue, kosher-commercial kitchen, student lounge, learning library, office, sleeping quarters for guest and private living quarters for the Rabbi's family.

After assisting a neighboring congregation, Tiferet Israel, Stephen Levy was hired to act as the project architect, designer, and contract administrator for the Chabad House.
