Australian Islamic Centre, Newport Australia
The Australian Islamic Centre located in Newport, Melbourne is considered to be the nation’s first contemporary mosque.
Designed in collaboration with Australia's first Pritzker Prize winner Glenn Murcutt, the Centre has been a project of love and passion that spanned over a decade from design to construction.
The mosque is an architectural masterpiece that perfectly combines Australian vernacular architecture whilst celebrating and appreciating Islamic design traditions. Through its openness in formal design, the mosque is an inclusive space welcoming to people of all faiths.
