Great Camlica Mosque and Complex
Çamlıca Hill Mosque was built on an altitude of 268 meters on the Anatolian side facing the Bosphorus. The mosque was designed as a "kulliye" that includes social, cultural and educational spaces as well as being a center of worship.
The exterior of the mosque was designed with inspiration from the works of Mimar Sinan, and Sinan's techniques were used in its construction. For example, lowering the main dome with a diameter of 34 meters to the ground with the help of small domes gives the mosque a natural look. Again, just as Sinan's Süleymaniye Mosque looks at the Bosphorus from the Süleymaniye Hill, the Camlica Mosque overlooks the Bosphorus from the Camlica Hill. The diameter of the main dome of the mosque was 34 meters to symbolize Istanbul, and its height was 72 meters to symbolize the 72 nations living in Istanbul. While two of the six minarets of the mosque are 90 meters each, the other four minarets were built with a height of 107.1 meters to symbolize the Battle of Manzikert.
Uzertaş's BEECK products were used in the project. Undertaking the paint supplier of the project, Uzertaş colored the Çamlıca Mosque with its 25-year durable paints, which can also be used in areas such as minarets where scaffolding is difficult. Thanks to BEECK paints, Çamlıca Mosque will be able to serve for a very long time without deteriorating its structure.
Alimoğlu took part in the project with its Marble Light Travertine (Cross Cut) product.
