This project team chose a symbolic site with a genius loci and appropriate climatic conditions for the intended function. Its design reference to historical Iranian gardens provided a legitimate aesthetic, atmospheric and form-related input. However, the architectural reference is not elaborated sufficiently, as well as the proposed materiality of the building. The selection of plants and other green elements to the site should be expanded in other to prevent bioclimatic deficiencies of monocultural sites. Moreover, its appropriate integration into the architecture should be reconsidered in terms of the maintenance of both the plants and architecture.
In summary, the concept, design and functionality of this project deserve a positive evaluation. Nevertheless, the critical points should be taken into practical considerations in order to improve the project's quality, uniqueness and practicability,
In designing this project, we had to consider an area where artists can express their ideas, and also the tranquility and silence of the area creates a favorable atmosphere for artists to live.
In our opinion, it is a suitable place for artists to stay in Tehran due to the silence of the mountains, the healthy air and the view of the river in the Lavasan region.
We are inspired by Iranian gardens in designing the site. One of the prominent features of Iranian gardens is the symmetry and use of trees such as cypress and sycamore. Like the garden of Prince Kerman, and also because of the cold and mountainous weather of Lavasan, the cypress tree, which is evergreen, has been used.
The architecture of this building is inspired by the architectural elements of the Prince of Kerman garden such as arches and its combination with modern architecture Used.
