The Bahrain North Mosque consists of a concrete shell clad in natural stone inside and out. The main prayer hall is one large room that offers tranquillity and a solemn ambience at any time of day. The hall is lit by sunlight shining directly through the triangular windows in the façade, as well as by indirect lighting systems that solemnly emphasise the size of the hall.

The building has sanitary facilities as well as living quarters for the imam. The North Mosque is a free-standing building with direct access to the sea. All building functions can be controlled centrally from the Arcapita main building, which was built directly adjacent.
