Cambridge ‘eco-mosque’ moves forward

A planning application has been submitted for a 1,000-capacity mosque in Cambridge which utilises sustainable techniques.

The brick building, by Marks Barfield Architects, incorporates heat pumps, heat recovery systems, water recycling and green roofs.

With sixteen interlaced glue-laminated timber columns, the design strives for an ‘English idiom’ while being inspired by nature and Islamic art.

The mosque complex features a kitchen, café, teaching rooms, two residential units and an underground car park for 80 vehicles. It  will replace an overcrowded place of worship nearby.
