Weekend House

Spending a weekend in the countryside is gaining more popularity with the growth of urban population in Tehran. This fact increased the demand for design of what is called commonly as “villa”. These villas are locating in usually big parcels of land and have almost no visual connections with their neighbors. This caused the change in outer material choice. Whereas large openings are a violation of building codes of Tehran, in the countryside the opening sizes are unlimited.

Instead of having doors as thresholds between different spaces, this project suggests a system of moving paths to block the visual but at the same time gives a sense of unity to the whole space. The house managed to host a family of four during weekends and does not manage to be habitable for longer periods of time.
