In 1922, Morgan designed another landmark building to aid young workingwomen. Similar to the YWCA buildings in program was the Emanu-el Sisterhood Residence at Page and Laguna streets in San Francisco.
The Jewish women’s group asked Morgan in 1921 to design a residential facility with assembly rooms, gymnasium, and other recreational features. The three-story brick building is on a corner site, with hills at different angles on the two street sides. The façade is formal, with broad steps used to give a level base to the slope. Tables and chairs built by Morgan’s craftsmen to her designs are still in use after sixty-five years After wartime duty as headquarters for female military personnel, the building was bought in the 1950s to serve as the San Francisco Zen Center.
