History in the making as the NFL debuts the first-ever prayer halls for the 2024 NFL Draft in Detroit.

History in the making as the NFL debuts the first-ever prayer halls for the 2024 NFL Draft in Detroit.


Working alongside Hussein Mokahal and his team at The Led Lion, we at Suite Storees have collaborated in the design and build of two 200-square-foot prayer halls, one at Hart Plaza and the other at Campus Martius. The First-Ever Prayer Halls at the 2024 NFL Draft is a testament to the power of inclusivity and the importance of representation.


These halls are designed with the area’s Muslim population in mind, but they are open to all faiths. As you step into these prayer halls, you will notice the attention to detail and the influence of Detroit and its story to the history of Islamic art and architecture. But more than that, you will feel a sense of belonging. Our goal was to create a space that not only caters to the spiritual needs of the attendees but also celebrates the community's diversity.


The First-Ever Prayer Halls at the 2024 NFL Draft is a testament to the power of inclusivity and the importance of representation.


I invite you all to visit these prayer halls from April 25-27 during the 2024 NFL Draft. This is not just about introducing a new feature to the draft experience. It's about making a statement - that the NFL, Metro Detroit Vendors - Small Businesses and Large Companies alike, populations of various ethnicities, interests and representation can be a part of a unified vision. 

Together, let's celebrate this milestone and continue to push for more inclusive spaces in all aspects of our lives - one where you can be yourself and feel represented.



As a designer, I have always believed in the transformative power of spaces. Spaces can tell stories, foster connections, and most importantly, they can make everyone feel seen and heard.

This is exactly what we aimed to achieve with the prayer halls - as a part of the draft and as a part of Detroit.


I invite you all to visit these prayer halls from April 25-27 during the 2024 NFL Draft as I am humbled, honored and enthralled to share with you a project that is very close to my heart - representing Detroit, its drive, its diversity and its spirit. As we present to you the first-ever prayer halls at the 2024 NFL Draft in downtown Detroit, we represent what design can do.


It will be sweet seeing you there and connecting with you about this initiative and the ones yet to be made.
