Best Implemented Restoration Project

About the project (provided by the applicant)
This century-old house project is situated in the heart of Rasht city, within its historic fabric. The unique features of this building include its tiled roof and load-bearing walls made of bricks, which have allowed it to stand out and endure for many years. The spatial characteristics of the house include varying room heights, creating an attractive division between the lower and upper half-story rooms. In the face of restoration and renovation challenges, the new residents’ comfort and modern amenities were considered. Essential interior spaces include a kitchen, sanitary facilities, and a semi-open intermediate space that can serve as a multipurpose room. Additionally, addressing the lack of direct communication between the lower half-story and the main courtyard, steps were added to connect them. Externally, a glass-roofed kitchen box was integrated, providing both a direct link to the courtyard and a cozy sitting area.
Unforeseen restoration challenges included damage
