Ham Saye Apartment (The Neighbor) in Tehran, Iran by Razan Architects

 
July 30th, 2017 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: Razan Architects

Based on the urban situation, people’s lifestyle and revitalizing the concept of reconciling human and nature, the architect tried to create a pattern within which all the expectations fit. “The building is called The Neighbor in order to be neighboring to the shading tree in the yard. We want it to be arisen from the nature and to describe architecture as a living paradigm.” -Said the architect. One of the remarkable specifications of the project is using recycled materials in order to lower the budget. The white façade is a product of combining cement and recycled stone. “We tried to bring the architecture into the homes of ones who had forgotten the “Quality” because of its high cost.” -Said the architect. Characteristics that describe the essence of design: Communication: The interior communal spaces provide the opportunity for the residents to easily communicate. The yard has short walls so the neighbors can let themselves inside, rest under the shade of the tree and have a friendly chat. Diversity: Order is nature’s quiddity. Architect looks for creation of inner order based on diversity as well as harmony. Reducing repetitive elements and using a modular design system resulted in a variety of different apartments, both in the structure of the plan and the exterior façade. Originality: Everything seems original here. All the spaces are designed based on a function. Being a home: The units get enough amount of daylight. Terraces are like private little gardens that have a great view to the city.

Spazio Silos is an interesting example of architectural redevelopment, restoration and enhancement of a particular cultural heritage: a new reinterpretation of the industrial archeology through Enzo Berti designer’s eyes, his experience and his personal style.
The building is made up of two historical “silos” in the area between Venice and Padua, realized during the 40s for a furniture factory, and completely inserted in the ancient roman land “centuriation”.

The small house is situated by a lake in the Stockholm archipelago, on a site that in the early 1900s was inhabited by a gardener. Plants and paved walls that were then organised still remain to a large extent today. For the last 25 years another garden interested family have used the old existing house as a summer home. The family, consisting of mother and two daughters, has grown in recent years when the two daughters have formed families on their own. That in turn has made more space necessary. One sister has renovated an existing guest house, while the other sister decided to build a new small house, Summerhouse T, for her family consisting of two adults and two children. The family formulated a program that included a kitchen, bathroom, dining area, living room, four beds and room for storage.  While municipal constraints did not allow a building that exceeded 40 m2.
