Hasırcılar Mosque

An interior design project was completed for a mosque built in Büyükçekmece, İstanbul in the years 2012-2013. Modern elements such as the dome and minaret do not exist in the mosque, which maintains a contemporary appearance due to the it’s body elevated on colons. An effort was made to create the interior design in a way that is in unity with the modern approach in the architecture of the mosque, showcasing a simple design expression.  While the details that would cause any kind of distraction in the areas allotted for worship were minimized, soft and natural tones were employed in material usage.  The mihrab (altar) and minbar (pulpit) were designed in a very simple fashion to create harmony with the overall architectural style of the mosque, with the use of Kufic style Arabic calligraphy being employed to further visual richness of the structure.
