Shemshak is the second largest ski area in Iran after Dizin and situated just about 55 minutes drive from Tehran. In the fall 2008, the architects designed a ski resort within the distance of about 1 kilometer from the Shemshak ski piste in the heart of mountain. Here the nature is so unique that this project was taken as a demonstration one to investigate the interface between nature and architecture.

Inspired by location and based on physical program, there are different size of cells in the Barin Ski Resort which seem to be carved from a mass and their smooth and fluid surfaces shape both inside and outside of the volume. In the residential units we cut these surfaces into slices to have more delicacy. These free lines not only form the main and secondary spaces, but they also shape the elements and details ; they flow in the space and base on the function, they alter their shapes and directions.

In design process we were also inspired by Igloos, the shelters which are built by native arctic residents’, but here topographic layers instead of ice blocks are put on each other to make a domical form. This Combined Metaphoric Design used both natural and human-made objects as inspiration sources to achieve its final form.
