Shahrake Ferdows Villa – Mazandaran, Iran
Soon to be completed! Two villa homes located in some of the most beautiful landscapes of Iran.
Project I : Located in a region of apple orchards near Mt. Damavand 100km from Tehran, this design rests above its own sloping garden of apple trees and opens to a vista of mountains in the horizon. We aimed to preserve the natural and historical state of the area by leaving the garden relatively undisturbed while enhancing the views of the surrounding landscape.
Project II : Located in the north of Iran, this shoreline villa looks out across the Caspian Sea. One defining feature is the combination of the concepts of the Persian hoz and the Japanese onsen, in designing the central courtyard’s shallow pool. Likewise, a traditional iwan was included.
