The Golfam project site is 637.5 m2, located on the southern side of an alley off Jordan Blvd. The program includes 15 office units on 5 levels over a piloti, including lobbies, shared spaces, storage, and parking. (According to Tehran’s building regulations the volume of the project needs to occupy a maximum of 60% of the site, and must be located on the northern side of the site, adjacent to the street.)

Given the length of the site and the allowable building volume, the design parti was to create a central void (similar to a courtyard in a traditional house) to maximize the use of natural light and ventilation. Additionally, in order to provide the necessary floor area for all the office units, floating volumes were designed within this central void space (housing meeting rooms). These “hovering” objects are in contrast to the main form of the building, and create unexpected sequences of space within each unit. They are connected to the sides of the central void, and by slightly shifting against one another, create plays of light and shadow inside the building with the movement of the sun.
