The Idea behind the Design of the Project: The main aim was to join two separated apartment (3rd & 4th floor) together with a special design staircase. Therefore we have one 86 square meters duplex unite. 3rd floor includes a studio, a bedroom and a bathroom and 4th floor includes a living room, a dinning, a kitchen and a guest restroom. The most important limitation in this project was the lack of space so we needed an efficient space design and creativity in planning so in the final design loft spaces and flexibility is seen in many parts of the project. For vertical access since there was not enough space for standard staircase, we divided each floor stair to two pieces, therefore the length of staircase became half but the height of that was didn’t change. One of the main purposes of this project was to combine traditional Iranian architecture with the modernity, so the project is inspired from Iranian architectural details such as niches, arcs, colors and etc. for example the holes on the living room’s wall is inspired from the Ali Qapu music hall walls. materials and colors in this project such as brick, wood and Turquoise blue is inspired from traditional Iranian architecture. Totally In this project we tried to create a calm and pleasant place to live.
