Located near the historic Naqshe-Jahan Square in Isfahan, Iran, Farvardin House stood at 640.0 m2. Piramun Architectural Office was responsible for the construction of this green-space building. Led by Behrouz Shahbazi, the project was finished in 2014 despite the challenge it presented through the vegetation selection and construction regulation.
The construction regulation states that the building height must pay heed to the height limitation which is no more than 9 meters to match the neighborhood’s skyline. Due to that condition, the construction was exceeded from the regular standard 60% to maximum 80%.
Farvardin house offers the vegetation lining out on different floors and on the rooftop.
The vegetation selection was based on the compatibility and criteria for each side of the building.
These are the railing plants the architects incorporated into the building.
The greeneries adorn the building’s entrance.
The vegetation includes plants that resistant to direct sunlight and falling plants.
The plants are able to create a nice greenery scene for the pedestrians who pass by the building.
The Stairway Void
For the staircases, the void design was selected. It also provides a nice hue coming from the natural light.
Specifically for the east side stairway, Ivies are planted to provide the visual quality of the stair. The Ivies are chosen since they do not benefit from direct sunlight. Moreover, the way they grow vertically enhances the view of surrounding area.
The Inner Part
Here are some takeaways from the inner part of the house.
The first floor consists of a spacious living room, kitchen and breakfast nook, several bathrooms, and two bedrooms.
For the second floor, it has a master bedroom, living room, kitchen, a breakfast nook and dining area, a family room, a bathroom, and two bedrooms. From this floor, you can also access the rooftop where shrubs plants were planted.
