Tetra Food Hall

Best Implemented Project of Public Building or Facility

About the project
“Tetra Food Hall” is a three-level commercial building with the area of 600 m2. It’s located on Kianabad Street in Ahvaz with different functions such as café, restaurant and pastry bakery. As the building was placed between two brick buildings, the brick color was chosen to be somehow between those of the neighboring buildings. Then, brick walls were introduced in the structure and were curved in order to serve as a continuum of the city shell and leading the people in. This formation connects the interior and exterior to welcome the customers by their curved shapes at the entrance. As a result, there are several curved brick walls between concrete cells whereas each wall has a unique radius and angel depending on its function. One wall is specifically designed for the entrance; some walls envelope the seats in the restaurant and some others function as straight separating walls. Tetra Food Hall is a pattern of dancing curved walls extending the melody of the city to the inside.
