CHURCH & MOSQUE IN SCHUCHINSK - Kazakhstan
The religious building of Military Educational Campus in Schuchinsk.
In the beginning, the building was designed for Muslim, Christian
and Jewish students, as three separate parts under one roof, but
afterwards the client cancelled the part for the Jewish and the
design was revised accordingly. The building is located at the most
calm and quite part of the area, behind the dwelling village.
Both praying rooms are designed with
similar shape plans, as two separate buildings with a road in
between and the Mosque is directed to Makkah. The buildings are
connected by a lower level roof and perceived as one building.
Entrances are from the semi-closed octagonal platform, shared
by two buildings and each has a vestibule at the entrance. Instead
of designing a minaret and a bell tower, it is preferred to distinguish
the religions by a crescent and a cross symbols at the ridge of
