Avishan – Damavand – Tehran
Area :650 sqm
Avishan town, located in the northwest of Damavand city and surrounded by Sarhar mountains in three directions, is a project that has been implemented in partnership with the Tehran Housing and Urban Development Organization.
Planting a trees in order to improve the condition of green space, defining the criteria related to the town and creating welfare and recreational facilities, as well as obtaining global approval though Leed certificate, Avishan town is considered as a model town with sustainable architecture.
Avishan Villa project was designed at the request of the owner, on a 900 square meter plot of land located in the same place mentioned above.
In the middle scale, due to the gentle slope of the ground, a stepped and non-level area was created, which by dipping the volume of the building into the ground or in other words opening a front from the basement to the green area, in addition to creating balance between the slope in the ground and in the opposite direction, which reaches the basement and the pool area, creates centrality, a sense of stability in the building and the combination of the garden area and the transparent volume of the building, or in overall a cohesive space.
Due to the location of the land and the potential of the environment, as well as the lifestyle and needs of the owner, an extroverted and transparent architecture has been obtained for the building, which due to the relatively large volume of glass walls, also had a visible structure.
In the interior nature of the space, in addition to the transparency of the outer walls, inside gaps and veins that separate the overhead surfaces, caused a controlled visual connection between the separated spaces, creating more private and public spaces.
Due to the multiplicity of surfaces inside and outside, and the transparency in both areas, we are faced with a view of the stairs in different directions and different shapes, which in addition to creating a sense of curiosity and active environment, brings a warm atmosphere.
Finally, the existence of transparency in the project, by showing the communication spaces in the horizontal and vertical directions that form a trailing element, and its combination with negative spaces, has become relevant and in addition to internal coherence, a more complete and balanced understanding of volumes provides a communication diagram in it to the audience.
