Allies and Morrison appointed to design Abbeymills Mosque in London 

The trustees of Abbeymills Mosque have appointed Allies and Morrison to design the Abbeymills development which will include a new Mosque.

The proposals for a new mosque have been under consideration since 1996, when the trustees first acquired the 18 acre location. Following a decision made last year a competitive competition was launched to identify suitable Architects to lead this exciting if unintentionally controversial development in the heart of West Ham.

Mr Abdul Sattar Shahid said “We have appointed a highly respected architects’ practice to deliver our vision. Allies and Morrison have a wonderful background of delivering practical yet inspiring buildings and they have agreed to design our development for us. We can now look forward to working with people who, like us, want to make a difference to the West Ham Landscape.”

Allies and Morrison have been briefed to design a development that will see the 18 acre site in West Ham transformed into: Mosque capable of accommodating 12,000 people, visitor and conference centre, with facilities that will be available for the public, car parking for a maximum of 650 cars, new entrance to West Ham tube station, generous provision for cyclists, desire to work closely with TfL and bus companies, residential school for 500 pupils with playing field, reception centre for visiting VIPs, including about 20 guest suites, extensive decontamination of the entire site (from its former Chemical Factory days), retention of natural habitat on unique island location within the site, landscaping of the whole site, extensive use of natural resources to reduce energy consumption and increase recycling.
