Built to replace an existing mosque on campus that was demolished with the implementation of the new campus master plan, the prayer hall is primarily used by Muslims for prayer but also opens its doors to people of other faiths to promote interfaith harmony.

Placed at the heart of the campus, the prayer hall accommodates 175 worshippers and has a separate enclosure for women with a segregated entrance and ablution area.

The building uses passive cooling techniques such as heavy foliage and a large body of water to create an oasis in the midst of the busy campus and a space for contemplation and meditation.

Designed with a sculptural screen, which creates a different shadow on the floor at the different times of prayer.

Surrounded by foliage on the round the Prayer Hall creates a sense of calm, contemplation and spirituality for students and faculty amidst the Campus. The Prayer Hall is a completely naturally ventilated prayer space.
