An initial sketch plan of the Shahjalal Mosque (V2) showing how the foyer acts as a central linking area to the “Pub”, Ablution spaces and Prayer Hall as well as promoting access to Shandy Park by creating a tree lined avenue from this central space. What is also of note is the central “hearth” which has several roles within the mosque, acting as the Mihrab (see Islamic Terms), a Minaret, extraction for the natural ventilation strategy and providing an architectural link between English industrial, traditional Islamic and East End domestic styles.
