Tagged under
Teheran , Iran

Competition entry for a mixed use building in Teheran, Iran.

 

The concrete upper building is screened from the street with wood fins but opens up to open air circulation at the rear. Planes of water and hanging vegetation assist in natural cooling strategies, while an all glass base gives maximum visual exposure to three retail units with sun shading offered by the deep overhang of the building above.

 

Top floor apartments have views over the city with floors of flexible office spaces below.
