Msheireb Mosque, Doha

The design of the Msheireb Mosque fuses Modernist ideas with an historically familiar arrangement of Islamic volumes, spaces and thresholds. The scheme uses local stone, craft techniques and interpretive details. Our concept has evolved from the traditional Qatari mosque and follows the principles of simplicity, functionality and spirituality, combined with a modern interpretation of materiality and order. A key challenge of the design was ensuring that the entrances to the Mosque and the interior spaces once inside, were able to be accessed separately by men and women, in accordance with Islamic customs.
