I really love the progressive design of this mosque. Fine, the basement carpark is wee small so best to park at the carparks at the surrounding estate. But the ablution area is spacious. The water on a hot day is cold. Splashing yourself with water from the taps is a real treat.
But what I like most about the mosque is the design of the main prayer hall. It has the perception of being spacious though it is not exactly very big. This is because of the glass ceiling and walls. You can see the sky and on a sunny day, there is no need for lights to be switched on. Pretty nifty if you ask me because with the sunlight illuminating the prayer hall, there's no need for lights and hence save electricity. It also reduces the financial strain of the mosque administrators.
