This cultural and religious center, one of the smallest new mosques in the country, is the bustling heart of the town's muslim community. Modern materials such as cut steel evoke timelessness by referencing centuries of islamic architecture.
The facade is a custom pattern of steel plate reminiscent of cut-out screens and tile patterns found throughout the Islamic world.
Echoing the rhythm of Islamic prayer times, constantly shifting shadows travel across the building through the day.
The brilliant blue color is traditional and a mirror of the California sky - a fitting symbol to the synthesis of cultures the mosque embodies.
An entry dome and scaled-down minaret cap the ends of the structure.
