The landmark of the complex will be a 30-metre-tall minaret in a calligraphic form. A square courtyard area with tiles laid in an ingenious geometric pattern forms the building's heart and arrivals area. The prayer hall has room for 800 people, but the construction is flexible, with walls that can be lowered and doors leading onto the courtyard, so that the entire area will be capable of holding a total of 2,000 persons.
Running water, light, gardens, calligraphy and ornamentation provide functional and decorative layers which add further contributions to the Mosque and Islamic Centre.
