In 2019 Académie des Arts Traditionnels and Fondation de la Mosquée Hassan planned together with Renner the restoration of the precious loggia made of cedarwood, that is on the top of the mosque in Casablanca. The restoration and the protection of the 180 columnes and of the decorated enormous ceiling is an exciting challenge.

At a distance of only one generation from the grand opening in 1993, Hassan II Mosque is still the second highest religious building in the world. Every year thousands of people reach this strip of land, stolen from the Atlantic, in order to contemplate the most amazing monument in Morocco. One of the most important mosques in the world. King Hassan II wanted it fantastic, capable to challenge the high waves of the sea and the merciless solar light.

This website is online to testify the thought and the work, that filled with life the restoration activities of a monument, that is part of the world architectural heritage.

THE AIM: PROTECTION OF BEAUTY

25 years after the opening, the loggia wood was seriously ruined by the atmospheric stress. For the enhancing and the protection of this masterpiece, team Renner chose hydro-oils Ultimate Protection UV+.

Ultimate Protection UV+ oils are smart solutions for the wood longevity.

All these features are perfect for the maintance of a masterpiece, such as the one in Casablanca.

A long and hard work was required for the elimination of the old coating, stratified and never removed from the columns and the ceiling of the loggia of Hassan II Mosque.

In order to simplify and make the future restoration activities more effective, team Renner chose Ultimate Protection UV+ range.

After this restoration, sanding the colonnade will be no more necessary.
The durability, the resistances and the aesthetics of the coating products will enhance the wood of Hassan II for years.

THE HIGHEST MINARET IN THE WORLD

When the French architect Michel Pinseau received the assignment to project the great Hassan II Mosque, he was inspired by a Koran verse, in which it is written that the God throne was built on the water.

King Hassan II wanted a symbolic building.

For its realization 20.000 workers and 10.000 artisans were employeed.

The mosque boasts the second highest minaret of the world (210 metres) and, in the space between the square and the temple, can host 105.000 believers.
