The Salafi Mosque

A metamorphic departure in search of contemporary vocabulary, the Salafi Masjid is a soulful realization of tranquillity within the walls. Set amidst a busy regular street in Aluva, the mosque univocally transcends itself as a ‘pause’ and a ‘journey’ to ataraxy. Sprawling across 8.5 cents of land, the mosque embraces the thought-provoking Islamic philosophy from the holy Quran: “He created the skies with the light, without pillars you see it” – throughout the design. Thus, the light becomes the soul of the mosque, and the induced transparency becomes the heart of its design. The 3230 sq. ft structure spread out in two floors emerges itself as a landmark for the locals, pilgrims and wayfarers. Sit... More

Mosque in Mardin

The aim of the architectural design submitted to the Mosque Design Ideas Competition opened by the Ministry of Environment & Urbanism has been providing a “particular” solution to the place and functions chosen, rather than introducing an “original” form for mosque buildings. The location of the unspecified plot was assumed to be in a newly developing suburb of Mardin, a historic town in Southeastern Anatolia, and additional facilities that will turn the mosque into a public gathering place in such a setting were sought at the beginning of the design phase.In response to the relatively low education and income levels, housing shortages worsening with internal and external migration, as well as the lack of social spaces in the peripherie...

Iconic Mosque Dubai

Competition proposal Dubai Creek Harbour.I present to the honorable colleagues my proposal for the design of the mosque. Proceeding from the task of the create design the mosque, a planning symmetrically concerning Creek Towers and accommodate more than 7,500 parishioners with infrastructure and services.

Priority is the prayer hall. The whole building as a base, of the praying society. The load-bearing V shaped structures forming... More

Dubai Mosque

In order to meet the capacity of the mosque asked in the brief, we maximized the footprint of the building to provide full use of site and rotated only the facade of the building towards Mecca instead of the building itself. By doing this, we have realized the building itself had an ornament value as a whole. Instead of introducing a separate minaret and dome, we have aimed to morph the whole building into one single object while keeping the spatial qualities and silhouette of a traditional mosque. More

Essalam Mosque, Rotterdam

The building is composed of three stacked, interlocking spaces: the prominent entrance portal on the west side, the main space in the middle and the semicircular mihrab (a niche which indicates the direction of Mecca) on the southeast side. The three spaces are crowned with domes. Because the site available was 800 m2 and the programme of requirements amounted to 2,600 m2, it was decided to organise the building vertically. The mosque therefore counts four levels. The ground floor has mainly a non-religious function. The prayer halls for men are situated in the central square space extending over the first and second floors with an internal balcony; on the third floor there are prayer halls for women. A library, the imam’s chamber, offic... More

Tuanku Mizan Zainal Abidin Mosque

Woven mesh windows for the Iron Mosque in PutrajayaWicked tongues compare Putrajaya, the ultra-modern administrative centre in the southwest of Malaysia, to a Disneyland for civil servants. The planned city for 90,000 inhabitants was created in 1995 about 30 km south of the capital Kuala Lumpur. The sprawling satellite city, named after the first Prime Minister of the country, Tunku Abdul Rahman Putra, forges nature and technology into great forms of architectural expression. It is no coincidence that the last word jaya means perfection. The approach in Putrajaya is reflected in prime examples of Malaysian Islamic prestigious buildings, scenic parks, artificial lakes and waterways. Following an unspoken master plan the city combines both hi... More

The Battery - Mosque

Construction of the first purpose built mosque in Denmark is about to commence. The building, designed by BIG, is a combination of Scandinavian and Islamic architecture. Construction is expected to start within a year, according to the architecture office. The mosque, to be built in Denmark’s capital Copenhagen, looks like a ziggurat, consisting of a continuous wall engraved with verses from the Koran. Although it seems to be a closed structure on the outside, the skylights allow the worshippers to bathe in the light. The construction of the mosque, ordered by Denmark’s largest Islamic organisation, is intended to contribute to the integration between Muslims and other Danes. As a result, the building will be a multifunctional compl... More
