Al Awir Mosque
Hatta, Al Awir, Dubai, UAE
Located at a prominent location of main Dubai Hatta Oman Road, the sophisticated off white color of the mosque invites all attention of passerby and night view with blue lights complimenting the overall color gives visual treat at time. Using patterns, ornamentation and materiality in this project helped improve the user experience when entering courtyards and the building from the outside; which is surrounded by beautiful greenspace.
There is open ablution with fountain in middle placed at entrance of the mosque. The Mosque is built up with pre cast designs curated at the factory and put together on site which made this a time efficient project. There is a pattern throughout the building, referring to traditional Islamic geometry, but reinterpreted in a decomposed modern language.
