            The project is an extension to the Cemetery Finkenriek for the growing population of the Muslim communities in near by neighbourhoods. The building is solely for Muslims, where they can bury their dead in accordance with Islamic rites. It will be the first building in Hamburg with this function. In principle, the building is oriented towards Mecca and designed as a single storey solid masonry structure arranging all functions under a wooden roof. The brick façade and the interior contain architectural elements and ornaments, which are borrowed from Islamic architecture and re-interpreted in a modern way.
