The work aims to analyze the influence of translucent fences on the light environment in the prayer hall and internal premises with the traditional volumetric-spatial solution of stone mosques of the late XVIII - early ХХ centuries in Kazan (Republic of Tatarstan, Russia). Based on the study of stone mosques in Kazan it was revealed that the main factor was the creation of a complete architectural image of the mosque following the temporary style and solution of the internal light environment through windows and stained-glass windows. Windows and stained-glass windows were scaled using architectural elements and decor for the holistic perception of the object. The significance of the obtained results for architecture is to present recommendations for the organic use of the studied techniques and methods of work on the objects of the architectural heritage in the restoration and design of modern mosques.
Key words: stone mosques / volumetric-spatial and light environment / Islamic architecture / national traditions
