Masjid Yusof Ishak



Traditional mosque re-interpreted

The Project


Approaching congregants will first identify the mosque with its minaret as the landmark. Upon reaching, they are greeted by the Bab which marks the entrance as a bridge between the mosque and the community. This is further emphasized with a grand portal as a node to orientate people towards Kiblah.
