The Grand Mosque, designed by RMJM has opened in Dubai International Financial Centre.
The contemporary mosque that can accommodate 500 worshippers completes the sequence of buildings on Gate Avenue’s promenade.
The design is inspired by Islamic architecture and blends traditional elements, such as mashrabiya with a contemporary style.
A mashrabiya is a type of projecting window enclosed with carved wood latticework and stained glass.
The mosque is enveloped by a perforated screen that allows light to enter.
It also includes a women’s prayer area and can also host worshippers for Friday prayers.
