The award-winning Madrasah and school in Leicester was purpose built to better serve local children and adults. Comprising 32 classrooms, nursery, community hall, library, bookshop and space for youth activities, the Madrasah’s design follows traditional Islamic architectural styling but was delivered in a contemporary manner to suit the flexible needs of the community. One of the key design considerations was the Madrasah should have a long-term maintenance strategy with minimal energy usage, and to achieve this renewable technologies such as air source heat pumps, photovoltaics and passive ventilation systems were incorporated.
