Layers Villa

Best Project of Private Residence

About the project
Layers Villa is located in Hashtgerd region in Alborz province with the area of 1200 square meters. . In the initial analysis of the site, we realized that the climatic conditions of the area and the neighborhoods could be a threat to security and privacy in this house, which was one of the most important concerns of the design team in the first design steps of the project. The main idea of the project is based on the 90-degree rotation of the gable roof and a multi-layered structure. Project spaces are defined between the surfaces and their thickness, which has created private spaces with unique qualities. The sloping form of the layers are a natural response to the typology of the buildings in the area, their homogeneity and climate issues (unfavorable light and wind), as well as the need for a sense of privacy.
