New Build – Makkah Mosque, Madrasah and Community Centre, Bolton
David Cox Architects was appointed to work with the community to develop a design for the replacement mosque and community building. The proposal is intended to provide improved facilities to meet the social, religious and education needs of the local community.
The proposal introduces features of tessellation in both plan and detailing as well as typically Islamic features such as archways, mashrabiya screens and materials such as sandstone. The design is sensitive to local context while incorporating Islamic influences and features from international precedents.
