Linear villa, located in Taleghan, Central Alborz Mountain, is a minimalist two-storey which compound of metal, wood and brick.
Villa carefully responds to three major questions: the needs of the residents, the situation of the site, and the environmental concerns.
This strategy has been achieved by extracting a box rom the monolithic geometry to create courtyard and inserting a dynamic series of linear windows in the red brick and wood for façade.
The courtyard acts as a buffer space between the west and east spaces of the villa while allowing natural light to travel into the villa and creating a visual connection between the interior divisions.
The courtyard zone blurs the edge between the exterior and the interior while creating an in-between situation in severe weather and balance conditions of winter and summer. Source by Artur Omid Azeri and Jafar Lotfolahi.
