This project is inspired by Iranian-Islamic architectural tradition but is contemporary in form and materials, being concrete frame structures clad in curtain walling. The embassy is conceived as a private pavilion amidst an inner garden - a Koushk - connected via a body of water to a public entrance building, which is the consulate. The water creates an axis that continues to the glass covered conference hall within the embassy. The combination of glass, water and light create a boundless quality so that the internal space seems a continuation of the external. Decreasing matter and increasing space in this manner is intrinsic to Persian tradition.
