total built area:
This project is a 3 story residential building for two sisters and their mothers in a very unique and beautiful site in Damavand which a small river defines one of its boundaries. Each person wants a separate unit, ground floor for the mother of family and above (first & second floors) belong to the sisters.
The whole idea to develop this project comes from its site and clients, we considered this project in its most abstract way as a three surfaces which represents living territory for each person, then we fold and intertwine these surfaces together in one direction toward the great view and also toward the river on the border of the site, then what we confront was the possibility to create living spaces in-between these surfaces, so surfaces together make the whole project like the real life of this great family which they support each other in every cases.
Design in Details
In design, we bring characteristics of the natural world into built spaces, such as water, greenery, and natural light, or elements like wood and stone. Encouraging the use of natural systems and processes in design allows for exposure to nature, and in turn, these design approaches improve health and wellbeing. There are a number of possible benefits, including reduced heart rate variability and pulse rates, decreased blood pressure, and increased activity in our nervous systems, to name a few.
Over time, our connections to the natural world diverged in parallel with technological developments. Advances in the 19th and 20th centuries fundamentally changed how people interact with nature. Sheltered from the elements, we spent more and more time indoors. Today, the majority of people spend almost 80-90% of their time indoors, moving between their homes and workplaces. As interior designers embrace biophilia.
Establishing multi-sensory experiences, we can design interiors that resonate across ages and demographics. These rooms and spaces connects us to nature as a proven way to inspire us, boost our productivity, and create greater well-being. Beyond these benefits, by reducing stress and enhancing creativity, we can also expedite healing. In our increasingly urbanized cities, biophilia advocates a more humanistic approach to design. The result is biophilic interiors that celebrate how we live, work and learn with nature.
