This exquisite, luxurious work of architecture comes in three floors with 3300 square meters’ substructure, and has four domes, two minarets, two porticos and six entrance porches, so follows the architectural style of eclecticism post-modern white mosques. The dominant colour of this building is white, as the exterior facade is entirely made of Azna porcelain white stones.

In this building, while preserving the classical traditions of Islamic architecture, a new perspective has also been used to provide a unique, mystical and relaxing atmosphere. This building has the characteristics of formalism, while stresses on abstract structure at the expense of other pictorial elements especially by displaying cubistic, as well as purism aspects of post-modern mosques.

Since the mosque is a spiritual place where Muslims usually go to pray every sunrise and sunset, the lighting concept of this place is derived from the fluid and eye-catching light composition of warm and cool tones during sunrise and sunset in the sky. The blue light that covers the exterior surfaces of the mosque adopted from the blue sky and the warm white light that covers the porticoes, (minarets) and interior walls and opens its way to the outside, representing the warm and life-giving tone of the sun on the horizon during sunrise and sunset.

What makes the sunrise and sunset beguiling and eye-catching is the attractive composition of the warm sunlight and the cool blue tone of the sky on the background, which has been tried to be simulated optimally in the lighting design of this mosque. What is doubly important in the lighting design of this mosque is the effort to show the beautiful architectural layers of this magnificent building in order to re-define its aesthetic aspects in the most eye-catching way possible.

One of the lighting distinctive features of this mosque, which makes it unique in every way, is the use of an Intelligent Control System designed exclusively for this project to manage the live lighting of the building. This is how, after the sunset, the lighting of the mosque becomes visible, the warm tone of the shell light decreases its warmth during the night and by the end of the night it ends up in a cool white tone and after a few hours, except for the blue exterior of the shell, all the lights are turned off (the mosque goes to sleep) until the sunrise, when it wakes up again with an orange tone, and after the sunrise, all the lights are turned off. Thus, after the sunset until sunrise, this entire set shows itself as a living compilation.

Since Kish Island is one of the tourist attractions and an ideal destination for visitors, the lighting design of this devout place should be performed in harmony with the aesthetic style of the whole island in order to satisfy the tourists who expect to be in a religious place and in the meantime, can also become one of the beautiful landmarks of the city during the night, in this regard, the lighting of this mosque has been very successful.

The lighting of this devout place is designed in such a way that the elegance of all layers is revealed through light and makes the eyes of observer’s eager to see this fine architecture for a longer time.

A warm light in the form of Graze Lighting on the entrance gate and six porticoes of the mosque has made the stone carvings, which are all the work of Persian artists, to be displayed as beautifully as possible without the light sources themselves being visible.

The entrance porticos are arranged with 2700k in the most beautiful way over a cool bed of blue light with a wavelength of 455nm, which has given the outer shell of the mosque a soft coating, until the warm light that gives life has come out, so this religious place becomes a living and eye-catching mystical complex.
What prevails in the entire design process is the use of minimum light sources with the lowest power consumption with the highest efficiency. On the other hand, in order to increase the lifespan of light sources due to the high humidity in Kish Island, IP68 strip lights and IP66 wall washers and projector lights are used.
All the light sources of the strip light used in this project are included in special aluminium sheaths that, according to the installation locations, can have the best performance in terms of light coverage and concealment.

On the other hand, all light sources that are installed exposed are customized by the manufacturer to match the colour of the framework on which they are installed.

Within the lighting design of this mosque, from the beginning, the most detailed basic physical and organizational structures were considered for the implementation of this project. The use of high-quality installation materials and an expert team that was in charge of the installation, as well as the use of high-quality lighting equipment, are important factors that guarantee the longevity of the effective quality of this project.

Providing a complete user manual as well as a fully trained operator based in the location in order to setup lighting for occasional nights and at the same time, periodic monthly maintenance of the entire structure by technical experts to ensure the correct functioning of the light sources and control systems during the project’s lifetime have a very high impact on its functionality.

Since the employer invited the lighting group to cooperate after finishing the facade covering, there were numerous limitations for the implementation of lighting operations and hiding the equipment.

We tried to conceal light sources as much as possible within the architecture elements (especially strip lights). The light sources of the projector and wall washer are selected as small as possible, and more importantly, the colour of their bodies are matched with the facade coverings to bring the least visual pollution and visible deterioration during the day.
