ABOUT THE AMINE HATUN MOSQUE PROJECT
Every project comes into being with a story for us. Amine Hatun Mosque project in Rize also came to us with a story. By building the mosque on their land, which is a family heirloom, the mosque was asked to be a stopover for people traveling across the Black Sea. Then we wanted every visitor to see Rize when they look first. So with local ingredients; We started design with wood and stone.
It may be a place of worship, but the interior of a Rize is always fidgety, we chose a vibrant color carpet for the floor. Thus, we moved the space out of the dominant effect of wood. We designed a skylight from the ceiling and chose a large chandelier under it; We wanted the daylight to continue in the night.
