The office that consists of five companies have a Square Warm Beige character, where the Clients who have all five of the companies is keen to have the feel of a warm office with White-Beige element blend combined with white warm lamps. The architect proposed a squaring concept by implementing many decorative square elements in all sides of interior, i.e. in the Employee partition, ceiling lights, glass sandblast walls and a few wall elements, but still using the white-beige tone. The second floor has 3 GM rooms and some employee rooms of the 5 companies. The GM room is bordered by frames with modular Squares applied by white aluminum frames covered by sandblast sticker with module boxes. GM has his own area but not too closed and he will still be able to monitor the work of his subordinates.

Not like the different forms that we know from churches, or temples; and the reformed morph of these buildings which allow a concrete cube with a cross to be well accepted as a church; not many changes in the form of “mosques” are accepted, specially in central Muslim regions. However many practitioners found no reference of any specific formula for mosque architecture in religious texts, not only the people still recognize a mosque with a traditional architecture and also a dome and minaret, some non-traditional practices showed unpleasant reactions. This project is a practice of Attribute-oriented Architecture to design a mosque with new day architecture, but also to have the spirit of the known one. The architect did not remove the functional elements, but the designed mosque is the decoded aspect of a traditional mosque, and its meanings.

Our project integrates into its surroundings by respecting the urban fabric and existing buildings listed on the register of historic monuments. The use of the same type of stone, the preservation of existing buildings and respect for alignments all give the building an almost discreet character.
At the same time, the project establishes a strong identity, with the prayer hall and minaret recessed from the street.
The minaret and prayer hall are clad in white stone, symbolizing purity.

It is configured as an all day municipal institution for public, religious, educational and social facilities. The chosen radial liturgy adopts the equipoise of traditional Islamic architecture.

The project for the new mosque in Prishtina takes the interplay of the single religious believer and the community of believers as the starting point for its design. The mosque is a place for worship for the Islamic community, where the single believing individual meets within the community for the common worship and praying which thus becomes an expression of the ceremonial act within the community.
