once realized, the modern islamic religious cultural center will provide an extensive program of functions. bevk perović’s scheme comprises a mosque with facilities for ritual ablutions and a minaret, an educational building, an office, a residential complex, underground parking, a restaurant and a sports hall. providing more than simply a place for worship, the design also affords a venue for the local islamic community to gather and socialize.

the building is characterized by the muted material palette where the white of the façade and the light-colored concrete work in harmony. terrazzo has been used for the floors and ceramics to create a richly textured space while the wood of the panels and doors form a distinct contrast to the architecture and a gives a warm, human character to the project. not yet depicted by da rosa is the still to come blue dome that will complete the mosque and announce the building’s presence in ljubljana.
