The practices headed by the Nigerien Mariam Kamara (Atelier Masomi) and the Iranian Yasaman (Studio Chahar) have collaborated in turning an old mosque into a library and community center in the rural village of Dandaji, in Nigeria. The transformation was proposed by members of the community, given the building’s advanced state of dereliction and its incapacity to accommodate the growing population. All the facades have been reconstructed, as with parts of the roof, and the internal structure has been improved. A mezzanine level of wood and metal, meeting spaces, and classrooms were added. The library has been designed to interact with the new mosque in front, also designed by Atelier Masomi. The project is a culture and education hub where the religious and the secular peacefully coexist.
