Project: Mosque Rehabilitation
Client: Juma Masjid Trust
Location: Nashik, Maharashtra
Status: In Progress
This mosque has been, for more than 300 years, an object of continuity and transformation in its socio-spatial city context. The physical deterioration of the facility coupled with the existing population trend, led to its restoration and extension.
Reinforcing the strength of Islamic values as well as its traditional patterns, mosaic and marble cladded exteriors against a landscaped foreground were used to create an ornate setting, echoing an Islamic design feature. The interiors have been kept white, further enhancing the purity of a place of worship. The geometric patterns and motifs capture the essence of Islamic historic styles.
