Eilkhaneh Residential Building
Tehran, Iran

Eilkhaneh is an attempt to re-evaluate lost values, including the connection of the house with the garden, the communal aspects of domestic spaces, and the intrinsic spatial sophistication of interiors of Iranian domestic space. Here the staircase becomes the social nucleus where residents meet and greet one another. It is a four-storey building with three residential units for members of one big family that, although designated as infill by zoning by-laws, has four façades. A part of the façade is designed as two-tier, operable system. Each sliding panel is industrially designed and produced on-site. The sectional composition of the project allows in-between spatial pockets and vertical surfaces to become partially habitable.
