The new images offer an idea of how the Broughton mosque will look amid the local scenery

New images have offered a glimpse of the upcoming North Preston Mosque before organisers return to the planning committee next week.


Last September, The Royal Institute of British Architects announced that London-based Luca Poian Forms are designing the mosque after winning the international RIBA Competition.

The news followed a deferred planning application for the Broughton mosque, which arose due to the competition, with the building facing refusal due to its location in the open countryside.

Luca Poian said: “By virtue of its scale, form, and materiality, the mosque will be executed as a highly refined building that celebrates Islamic tradition whilst also paying homage to British craft.

“Working on projects that will have a profound community impact is at the core of our ethos, as well as delivering uniquely iconic architecture that will stand the test of time.”

The winning proposal featured an elliptical design that allows visitors to observe the structure from several viewpoints, with the minaret tower hailing Lancashire’s cotton mill chimneys.

The competition attracted over 200 entries from 40 different countries.
