Mill Road Mosque

  • The central feature of the Islamic Garden is an octagonal stone fountain (designed in collaboration with water specialist, Andrew Ewing), since running water is a vital element in the Paradise garden. Visitors may enjoy the sound and movement of the water as well as the shade of the trees and the plants in the gardens on either side. The curved oak benches are designed and made by cabinet-maker Tom Zinovieff.

We are currently working with Islamic garden designer, Emma Clark, Award-winning architects Marks Barfield, and Professor Keith Critchlow of the Prince’s School of Traditional Arts to design the new Cambridge mosque, by appointment of the Muslim Academic Trust. The contemporary and stylish mosque designed as an oasis, with columnar ‘trees’ as the main structure.

A guiding principle has been that the garden will be a harmonious balance between Islamic structure and relaxed herbaceous and naturalistic planting; the plants will evoke a sense of harmony through the seasons and connect with the rhythm of the natural cycles of the year. A respect for sustainability, biodiversity and insect-friendly planting has also been a constant theme in the selection of plants.
