Farsh Film Studio
Tehran, Iran
The four-floor residence, formerly the home of a filmmaker’s grandfather, has been refurbished as his film studio and a cultural centre in a deliberate choice to use only recycled materials, including the necessary concrete and steel structural members.  The narrow, rectangular, urban plot features a small pool and garden on the ground floor that now houses a café; the first floor contains a screening room; and the film studio and offices are located on the second floor as well as on the partially-covered uppermost roof-floor.  The interior finishes are exposed concrete or raw bricks; the re-painted metal stairs and doors, like all other materials, come from rubbish dumps; and all of the interior fittings - lights, electricity, and ventilation - are exposed.
