Masjid at Pehlar, Vasai

Located at Pehlar, on the outskirts of Mumbai, we are given an opportunity to design a Masjid for the local community. We began our approach with the understanding that a Masjid is not only a sacred space, it also plays an important role of social gathering and interaction for the community.

Our Solutions

From planning to appearance, there is an aim to strike a healthy balance between modern and vernacular styles of architecture. Elements like spires, domes, flowing windows and the ever beautiful intricate jaali-patterns all originally served specific purposes in the place they originate, and we do our best to translate them meaningfully to this modern interpretation. The Masjid is designed with the intention of grandness, to inspire the community it serves.
