Due to Tehran’s sunny weather in most of the days during the year, It is always a challenge for architects to get the maximum transparency,while controlling the direct south lightflow. Keeping these key aspects in mind,the idea of using a second skin in front of the façade was concreted.

Wooden shades, placed between stone columns, appear on the façade in order to control the light pouring in from the south while maintaining the view.

The shades have various shapes creating a dynamic façade for the building. They have been designed in a way to provide every floor with views towards the surroundings.

Granite flamehas been used throughout the building to create a coherent feeling.
