Synagogue Tips (3)

Synagogue

The design of the synagogue is from architect Tjeerd Kuipers from Amsterdam and IJ. van der Veen from Groningen. The building represent different styles with the spanish-moorish style being on the upperhand.

The building was put in use 23 maart 1906. In 1952 it was sold and used as a drycleaner. The people of Groningen protested and in the 70s the building was restored and since 29 november 1981 it can be used as a synagoge again. And a part of the building still is today.

Open during expositions. Info at the v v v.

Synagoge

The design for the synagogue was the result of a joint effort between the Amsterdam architect Tjeerd Kuiper and the Groningen architect IJ. van der Veen. The building displays a mixture of influences. The overall impression is one of a thirteenth-century Spanish-Moorish style.

Synagogue

The synagogue is a design by Tj. Kuipers and Y. van der Veen from 1905-1906. It features a finely decorated facade in Rationalistic style mixed with Moresque influences. Unfortunately its located in such a narrow street that it can hardly be photographed well.
