Central Jam-e-Mosque in Oslo

8 November 2021 – M2uur bv is currently working on the complex layout of 430 facade panels for the Central Jam-e-Mosque in Oslo. The panels replace the Iranian and French hand-painted tiles that were not resistant to the cold climate. All tiles of the central part have been photographed and the missing tiles on the minarets are an interpretation of the original part.

 The photos have been divided into 430 files and will be printed on Steni Vision panels in the coming weeks. Due to the slanting minarets, the many U and L elements and the precise connection of all the tiles, this project is one of the most beautiful and challenging to date. Completion is scheduled for 2022.

The mosque in Åkebergveien is the headquarters of the World Islamic Mission, one of the largest Muslim congregations in Norway. The mosque seats about 700 people and is one of the largest in Norway. When it opened in 1995, the Central Jam-e Mosque was the first mosque in Norway. The walls of the mosque are decorated with Persian tiles both inside and out. Many tiles have calligraphic inscriptions from the Quran.
