Sabzevar Arc House

Best Implemented Project of Private Residence

About the project
The brief was to design a four-floor apartment for a family of five in a land with a size of 300 sqm in the city of Sabzevar, Iran. They wanted to divide their living activities between four separate apartments, similar to going on a trip with five small cars instead of a big van. The requirement was simple: providing enough space for different activities of a family in a house with four floors; but not in four separate apartments. We proposed an integrated arc house to grow and organize their activities vertically as a complex.
