DJ Sangh Temple

This project proposes a new religious space for the Digambar Jain Sangh of Northern California, consisting of a temple and a meditation/community center building on a 68-acre site. The project places a strong emphasis on nature and the landscape.

A meditation garden with circular seating is sheltered by an idyllic fruit orchard.  A second outdoor meditation garden integrated with a small labyrinth, is perched on top of a gentle mound. Overall, the project’s landscape design harmoniously merges with the region’s native oak hill landscape. 

The temple and meditation center are accentuated with a dynamic planting palette of changing seasonal colors, including accent trees and species with cultural significance to the Jain religion.
