Chaman Villa designed by Special Space Studio

The Iran-based architectural studio Special Space Studio has designed a single family home that located in Mehrshahr, south-west of Karaj city, in Alborz province, Iran.

Architect's statement: The design of Chaman Villa began with how to deal with existing condition on site; an old residential unit and a pool. We seek to preserve them. By placing a Cedrus tree at the end of entrance path and redefining this path a structural ax was made in a way that second volume added at the other side of the ax.

These changes were in a way that the public and private zones divided according to their needed areas. Façade transparency between the volumes makes the Cedrus to be seen from the site entry.
