Farazin company was established in 1992 with the field of interior design and after many years of experience, started to study and design the office partition system in 2005, and continues to develop with its innovative and exclusive design until today.
Is it possible to unify the urban scenery by minimizing the formic expression of buildings as singular objects and emphasizing on the city as a whole? Unitizing different elements of the building including walls, windows, doors, etc., as well as reducing the variety of building materials could somehow address the so called issues. The project was designed as the headquarters for Kohan Ceram Brick Manufacturing Company.
A series of separate gardens and terraces make this design a meditative getaway in this northern Iranian valley. The plot itself is wide at the meeting of the street, and bottlenecks as it moves away. In this way, the longer street-side wall adequately protects the privacy of the perpendicularly linear plot. Likewise, the levels of the villa and gardens themselves can be vertically focused as the land stretches further from the street on its north-south axis. The overall aim was to fully integrate all the elements of a traditional Persian house from Iwan to various forms of gardens, such as Baghcheh and sunken garden.
This school has been designed for the Noor-e-mobin charity organization that is a NGO (non-governmental organization).This is a charity institute that has managed to provide the students with a different educational atmosphere based on the latest methods in the world at no charge. When we think of education, the classical form of schools and educational system comes into mind. Most of the people believe that a serious learning only takes place at that classical system.
The A.S.P. residential complex, (Kooy-e Nobonyad-e Vanak), was built in the early 1970’s and is made of three 23-floor residential towers. This complex houses 250 apartment units inside the towers and 120 villa-apartment, shaped in a staircase format, on the towers’ slopes and skirts. The board of directors of the complex has set strict policies for the reconstruction of the units. In addition, the existence of multiple shear walls, which are only 4 meters apart, makes new planning very difficult.
Every project in architecture faces challenges that achieving the answer will create a specific scenario for that building. One of the features of this project’s site is its small width, which made limitations in interior (plan) and exterior (facade) design. Meanwhile, its two corners allow better lighting for the building. The project is located in Amirabad neighborhood of Tehran; the entrance is from the southern and western sides.
The site is in the Royan city in north of Iran, located in a quiet residential area, where there was a beautiful forest in the past. the design started with a conversation with the client who was a religious man and privacy was very important to him also he had a limited budget and wanted to build a very simple building. carry out a modern, practical and timeless design, sophisticated and cozy, representing the natural light and ventilation that also saves the client tight budget were our main challenges of the project.
[A brief explanation]
n many cases there are not few information about the buildings details such as name of Architect and any other technical information. so this is an approach to find out Iranian modern Architecture around of Iran by volunteering free photography.
Buildings are mainly constructed from 1900 - 1980.
A Call for participation to architects and designers
Future enthusiasts identify the technological and biological breakthroughs of this century as introduction to unexpected changes in personal lifestyle and social interactions of humans. Under the current circumstances, the experience of ‘staying at home’ provokes us all to rethink our relationship with the space within which we live: the ‘Home.’
Spending more time inside a home and limiting our associations from the exterior condition, whether desirable or not, changes our minimum expectations of the domestic space, and, challenges the contemporary well-established typologies and paradigms that have evolved over the past century.
It seems that a sort of computational/ analytical glitch has happened in our conception of the contemporary ‘Home’, and as a result, the ‘Home’ is not ready to receive our being beyond a certain point.
This campaign tries to challenge the current paradigms pertaining to domestic space and the ‘Home’ in a hope to expand its affordance in receiving our being in it. The scenario of living at ‘Home, alone or with neighbors, needs to be critically re-evaluated.
The campaign invites all architects and designers to participate in this exercise of critical re-evaluation and share their ideas.
Target Audience of the Campaign:
Architects and architecture students are the main audience of the campaign, but it is open to all designers, behavioral science researchers, and spatial practitioners at all scales and scopes.
In addition, they can share the related post on their own Instagram page and promote the campaign for others, inviting them to the challenge, using the hashtag,
This also makes a possibility for the campaign to observe and follow the ideas.
Please also mention the Instagram page of the campaign: [ @a_home_to_stay ]
Participants are free to choose their medium, including but not limited to, hand-drawings, computer images, photos, text, collage, etc. Moreover, participants can submit their plans, sections, perspectives or any combination of necessary architectural drawings to represent the idea.
