Etimesgut, situated in the middle of the Anatolian peninsula, boasts hot dry summers and cold, wet winters. This mosque is located in a military zone, some 16 km west of Ankara, amidst barracks and garrison buildings of an armored brigade. The building lies on a sloped site at the intersection of two roads and is composed of: a prayer hall, a minaret, and ablution facilities. The prayer hall is an enclosed volume of irregular shape defined by broken, angular walls penetrated by vertical openings.
In the prayer hall, the mihrab forms a niche that is emphasized by a vertical opening on one side. The concrete minbar is distinguished from the wall surfaces by streams of daylight. A mezzanine covers about a third of the surface opposite the mihrab and extends outside to mark the entrance. The minaret stands next to the prayer room in the form of an open air staircase whose side walls are a continuation of those defining the prayer hall volume. Outdoor ablution services are placed on a lower level next to the entrance.
