Abstract

The research aims to outline the design strategy for a mosque as a third place to promote an inclusive community friendly place. The research employs a qualitative case study methodology through observation and interview. The findings reveal that an inclusive mosque architecture can be enhanced based on the following design strategies: scale intimacy, ease of previewing, minimalist and adaptive building, space ambient, and impermanence landscaping character. Above all, the relationship between design, function, space and programming should be reestablished to infuse the mosque's inclusion for the benefit of all faiths, particularly the community.

Keywords: Multifaith Communal Area; Mosque Design and Contextualism.
