Cambridge Mosque and Community Centre
2009
Cambridge, United Kingdom

The scheme provides a large Mosque space with court-yarded residential accommodation on Manor Road on the outskirts of Cambridge.
The three formal proposals for the site are
- The Citadel
- The Jewel
- The Dune
Each scheme shares the same or similar programmatic distribution.

 

 

 

The Citadel scheme is based on a cubic arrangement with volumes which relate very much to the Cambridge and Islamic courtyard typology.
The Jewel option provides a Dome which resides between a cubic courtyard arrangements on either side with a Dome. The relationship to the street and to Brookfield Hospital is through the courtyard spaces.
The Dune option is seen as a single roof surface which forms the residential area at the front of the site and forms the Mosque at the other.
