Bemanian House
Isfahan, Iran
The 'joyful, energetic family of four' who live in this house needed a space that would give free rein to their modern, independent lifestyles. At the same time they wanted to have the atmosphere of traditional Isfahan houses. The design attempts to reconcile the two by creating 'borderless spaces' nurtured by the essence of the Persian garden and by a careful consideration of elements such as the location of the building in the garden and the dialogue between the pedestrian circulation system and the water flow. The main structure is concrete, while the roof frame is timber, covered with aluminium panels.
