About the project
the basic concept of the design was to create a space for co-existence between humans and birds. After visiting the project site, the architecture team noticed the widespread presence of birds there. they decided to design a house where people could live next to them. inspired by Iranian historical dovecotes, a part of interior space that acts as a patio due to the use of glass material and the transparency around it. The interior spaces are formed around the patio. the also inspired from sections, voids and stairs of traditional architecture. Perhaps what sets this building apart is its new look at biophilic architecture, Architects have always paid attention to the use of plants and light and water. But this house has become a place for more interaction; birds. This is a house for humans and birds. In this respect, inspired by Iranian historical dovecotes, a part of interior space was dedicated for this purpose.The interior spaces is formed around the patio where the birds live.
