Cambridge Mosque and Other Timber Projects

The defining feature of Cambridge Mosque is its timber structure. The timber columns, or ‘trees’, reach up to support the roof using an interlaced octagonal lattice vault structure evocative of English gothic fan vaulting, famously used at the Kings College Chapel, Cambridge nearby. The timber is sustainably sourced spruce which is curved and laminated.
