The architecture studio, made with two huts, in a pleasant space garden, adjacent to each other. The set above includes: a "Thinking Room" with conical form and an architectural workshop, organized linear. Designs are based on sustainable architecture principals and the buildings haven't disturbed the general view of the garden.The recycled materials had a great role, not only in the overall design but also in its interior design and structure.These materials were mainly provided from the surrounding; around the site and workhouses. Most of our materials are recycled from the Construction debris.
The main concept of design was In make some unification between the garden and the buildings shapes. So we decided to pull up some spots of the gardens land and design these buildings as humps of the land. Designs are based on sustainable architecture principals and the buildings haven't disturbed the general view of the whole garden. Also the owner can demolish them when he wants and with destructing the roofs and filling the trenches with them, he would have his pure land.
Thinking room designed in conical shape; in earlier civilizations they believed that conical and pyramid shapes have some kind of suction effect on the nature energies. Also in thinking room we have gatherings and the circular form of the space and plat-forms allows this in the best wag. In the work place we needed linear and parallel communications.
The reason of designing these buildings sunken in the ground was In use the ground as an insulator for the internal spaces; according to Iranian traditional architecture methods, this is the wag that we could save the natural energies in our building. Also some narrow wells have been drilled for bringing up the soil humidity from depth of the ground; its kind of traditional cooling system in hot seasons. In some parts of internal spaces in case of need we designed numerous narrow apertures to crash the strength of the sunlight and reduce it to a comfortable light.
