New Project – Golestan Museum

South of the Caspian Sea, the mountains are covered with a blanket of jungle, a natural reserve protected by UNESCO . This is the land of the wolves and leopards, once called Hyrcania by the Greeks (taken from the Darius’ Behistun inscription Verkana).   

We are honored to be a taking on a new museum project in the beautiful northwestern province of Golestan! In this way, we can help contribute to the preservation of history and culture from this special region of Iran. More updates soon!

Soon to be completed! Two Homes

Shahrake Ferdows Villa - Mazandaran, Iran

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.
