About This Project

Cotter Reid Architects were commissioned to design a new Muslim Prayer Room and Spiritual Centre at the Deakin University Burwood campus in 2012.  A clear understanding of the faith and space requirements was required to incorporate male and female prayer spaces, ablutions rooms, a chaplain’s office and a multipurpose teaching space. The site for the new Muslim Prayer Room facilities are contained within an existing Deakin University Burwood  building which included a derelict commercial kitchen and cool room, creating an interesting set of challenges in both design and construction for Wayne Reid, Director Cotter Reid Architects. The resulting spaces are inviting, serene and light-filled.
