We are delighted to announce that we have won the competition to design a new iconic mosque near Preston, Lancashire. Run by the Royal Institute of British Architects, the open 2 stage international design competition attracted 213 proposals worldwide and sought concepts for a landmark religious and community building which could ‘become a proud element of Preston’s skyscape for many years to come.’
Working on projects that will have a profound community impact is at the core of our ethos, as well as delivering uniquely iconic architecture that will stand the test of time. This competition was a truly unique opportunity to achieve both goals hand-in-hand, and we’re looking forward to fostering a close relationship with our Client as well as with other key community stakeholders to ensure the project is delivered to the highest standard. We are thankful for the opportunity and we look forward to carrying this project to fruition.
A big thank you goes to the whole design team, in particular to Price & Myers, Skelly & Couch, Bristow Consulting and ASC Engineering for their precious contribution during stage 2.
