Mashhad House in North East Iran
Design: Pi Architects
Location: Mashhad, North East Iran
Fifth Week, A Renovation
This project is based in a residential building in Mashhad whose construction dates back to approximately twenty years ago. The building has two residential floors and a basement where a jacuzzi, a pool and a sauna are located.
The client had requested that Pi Architects transform the ground floor into a place suitable for his mother and sister, and the first floor into a comfortable dwelling for his wife and children. He believes that the facade is acceptable and does not need changing. A symmetrical structure is what he looks for.
This structure of the building was already designed accordingly. Symmetrical axis spaces accompanied with classic ratios are prominent features of this building.
As a result of this, this project focuses on preserving the current classic ratios and structural symmetries, as well as modifying the properties of X and Y axis. Also, the Z axis is paid special attention to in this regard.
In addition to this, the concepts of indoors, outdoors and identity are significant features which have been taken in to consideration.
In this project, the main objective has been rebuilding the architectural structures of invaluable houses of previous periods in Kashan. A closer look into Abbasian’s homes in Kashan as well as the analysis of spaces and programs for different hours during the day have been of main issues dealt with in this project.
It is attempted to view the issues in six different aspects, which means each space, based on its function and attributions, stresses one major issues concerning its decoration and design.
It can be said that all spatial elements, such as lighting, hierarchies, ratios etc., are employed for axis and directions. The stress is on dichotomies such as stability-movement and silence-sounds for internal spaces extending from the skylight to the yard. This emphasis is associated with the concepts of habitancy as well as In-Out identity.
To put this idea into practice, certain measures are to be taken, for example the sky light is to be the green vertical axis of the building which is accommodated with the sound of birds and movements. Besides, the yard is to be amended with two levels of garden.
