Inkdesign gets go-ahead to update Glasgow mosque

Inkdesign Architecture's proposals for the redevelopment of Masjid Noor Mosque in Glasgow

Scheme will see building extended and reclad with addition of 21m minaret

Glasgow-based Inkdesign Architecture has been granted planning permission to extend and reclad the city’s oldest mosque in a scheme that will also add a 21m minaret.

The practice’s plans for Masjid Noor Mosque will deliver 2,975sq m of new floorspace with a front, side and rear extension to the building that will provide a new entrance and prayer hall among other facilities.

Inkdesign said the scheme for the mosque, otherwise known as the Mosque of Light, would also feature a private courtyard.
