RAS AL HAMRA - MOSQUE MASJID AL RAHMA

Oman

Mosque Masjid Al Rahma, which has a a capacity for 150 worshipers, along with an adjacent sports facility, is a focal point in the Ras Al Hamra development. Connected to the residential areas by the primary footpath and cycle route, the mosque holds a landmark position alongside the arterial Ras Al Hamra Street and the Arrival Gateway.

The landscape design reflects the architecture of the mosque, drawing inspiration from traditional Omani design and, in particular, the Sultan Qaboos Grand Mosque in Muscat. A decorative carpet of feature paving, in an Islamic pattern, extends from the internal courtyard to create an arrival plaza. Reflection pools and a formal arrangement of palm trees are used in a minimalist design which seeks to enhance the grandeur of the arrival sequence and create a serene platform for the mosque itself.
