Abstract

Relocation of a heritage building is one of the conservation methods that will effectively restore but also change the building setting permanently. In this research, relocation programme has been studied based on a real-life project of relocating and restoring a 108-year-old mosque from Kampung Gajah to Ipoh in Perak, Malaysia as the case study. Aspects of conservation methods, modern design and users’ expectations and financial factor have been discussed in this study, with reference to the case study and related literature review. The study also explored the possible future solutions of many old and abandoned timber mosques or other notable timber structures in the country through relocation programme.
