While airport terminals might boast – admittedly drab – multifaith prayer rooms, the House of One project in Berlin seeks to become the first specifically designed building to host a mosque, a church and a synagogue all under one roof.Partners in the Jewish and Muslim communities were found, and the project has been worked on communally since.The decision to crowd fund the finances came from not wanting any high profile donors coming from one of the three Abrahamic religions.Since the project launch, House of One has attracted media and popular attention from around the world, with people from Hong Kong and Australia among those donating a minimum of 10 euros to purchase one brick for the building.
