Project • By Mahyar ArchitectsOffices


This project was originally inspired by the defense mechanism of some wild plants against harsh conditions and against being eaten by wild herbivore animals. This protection is mainly done by the thorns on their stems and leaves. Like these plants, people in society become aggressive to protect themselves.  The conditions of the project: This building is situated in a poor neighborhood on the outskirts of Tehran. It was originally a room made of bricks which was used as a kitchen, but then later was turned into a run-down garage for motorcycles. This building is adjacent to Tehran-Qom highway and local access road on the one side which makes it a very noise-polluted area, and on the other side there is the entrance to a vehicle grave...

Rakpart 22

In the edge of the historical center of Győr, in the neighborhood of Széchenyi bridge a rectangular building complex has been designed. The complex includes three parts. A strip mall run through the ground floor. Two linear masses are placed above them, which contains the apartments. While the office building is situated in the north-west corner of the facility. Avoiding the effects of road 14, bachelor flats are facing to the private garden, so the side-corridor protects them against the noise. The variation of solid and hollow parts gives a characteristic chessboardlike appearance for the façade. The different functions - residential, business – are represented byvaried external casing, fiber cement and plaster. More

Villa Draman

Villa Draman is a place that welcomes its guests with intense plants and water sounds coming from the small waterfall. The project was designed by architect Emre Acar, owner of Acararch architecture firm, and Çağrı Helvacıoğlu Aydoğu from his team. Acararch treats plants, sounds and natural light as a design element of both outdoors and indoors. From the beginning of the project, with blending the serenity of minimalism with special details and combining the natural-looking materials such as wood and linen with bold colors, a useful and impressive architectural language was aimed. Acararch aimed to create a spacious environment by effortlessly adding the power of the landscape and natural lights to its designs with the glass openings... More

Residence 104

Residence 104 is located on a wedge-shaped site that opens to sweeping views of a canyon, Lake Austin, and the Hill Country beyond. The architects faced a challenge common among projects located on sharply sloping lots with commanding views: capturing views from the house while maximizing the amount of outdoor space on the site. The design responds to this challenge in two ways. First, the house is laid out as an arc along the sharp fall of the terrain, high enough that the fill in front of the house creates a substantial level area.  Accordingly—and in a reversal of the typical American suburban house—the front yard accommodates many family activities such as playing, gathering, entertaining, and cooking. Second, the pro... More

Specification case study: Poisson Blanc by naturehumaine

Naturehumaine designed a minimalistic and refined chalet located in rugged terrain north of Montréal, Canada. The architects shaped the structure in a compact volume to reduce the footprint on the site. The squared floor plan is topped by a gabled roof structure. The modest budget led to a reduction of circulation areas, compact spaces, grouping of services and simple and affordable materials. The result is a minimalistic monochrome volume that fits well within its natural landscape.  Raphaël Thibodeau Wooden facade cladding - Modern Siding in Ultra White-1 by MaibecThe white wooden siding with vertical orientation is factory coated and provides increased protection against effects of the sun and the harsh Canadian e...

Duvall Court

Duvall Court is a redevelopment of a previously “unbuildable” set of alley lots in Washington DC, and thus a re-establishment of a thriving “alley neighborhood.”     The site began as housing for workers in a local brewery in 1893, with small-scale rowhouses sharing an inner portion of the city block.  Over time these uses of the alley blocks were gradually diminished, until DC Zoning Code deemed them “unbuildable” lots.  The outer perimeter rowhouses that had developed later became the preferred standard for the DC block, and the inner lots often were unused open space.   In 2016, DC changed the zoning code to allow these abandoned alley lots to be once again buildable, and t...

House J172

Set in a prime location in Bengaluru, the J-172 house is a careful reconstruction of an ancestral home, to meet the growing needs of the family, without disturbing the structural integrity of the house. Modern, minimal aesthetics were the basis of design, wood became the primary choice of material as per clients brief and planning was vastly determined using concepts of Vastu (traditional Indian science of spatial design and placement). Though confined within the boundaries of the existing structure, we were able to provide a playful yet functional planning. The entrance foyer divides the house into public, semi-public and private spaces. To the right is the formal living room and to the left are the family room, kitchen and elders&rsquo... More
