- Dynamic lighting effects create attractive appearance inside and outside
- Efficient lighting reduces energy consumption by 80%
Jakarta, Indonesia – Signify (Euronext: LIGHT), the world leader in lighting, has brought a new look to the Grand Mosque in West Sumatra’s capital city, Padang. Built during the devastating 2009 earthquake, the Grand Mosque has become a symbol of hope and inspiration, and its 85-meter minaret has become an icon of the city.
Designed by award-winning architect Rizal Muslimin, the Grand Mosque does not have the usual dome. Instead, its roof is a contemporary interpretation of the traditional curvilinear roof found in Minang architecture. Built on four hectares of land, the Grand Mosque is the largest mosque in West Sumatra, and second largest mosque in Sumatra, enabling 20,000 worshippers to pray at the same time.
