Grand Mosque for Sheikh Zayed Bin Sultan Al Nahyan
Abu Dhabi
Studio Spatium Arch. Carmellini - Magnoli
2008
As a testament to the vision of its founder, Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque sits majestically at the entrance to Abu Dhabi City Island, distinctly visible from the three main bridges connecting the island to the main land, the Maqta, Mussafah and the Sheikh Zayed Bridge.

The strategic geographical location of the Mosque is a symbolic expression of the emotional connection the Mosque has with all UAE citizens particularly because the burial place of the late Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan, first President of the UAE, is located beside the mosque.

The Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque is well recognized by its pure color and every artistic design element was carefully considered and fits into the overall vision of the Mosque. Henraux has supplied floors in White Lasa and colored marbles, more than 100 arches in White Lasa, a wall entirely cut in marble that gives the landscape the light feel of fine lace and the “Qibla wall” produced with next generation technology inserting gold mosaic. The colors of the walls, columns and the carpet are harmonized together transforming the entire Mosque into an artistic masterpiece and a symphony of colors and shades.
