Toranj Apartments

Best Implemented Project of Residential Estate

About the project
In recent years, Iranian residential architecture has been offered as investment assets that on one hand, project appearance has become an ornamental object which has no identity and on the other hand, come from itself is incapable of creating organized and efficient spaces. The capital market tries to Benefit from the maximum area and use all of the spatial potential. So by denying any simplicity and inclination to extremism, offers it at the highest price.
The design of the Toranj project was entrusted to our studio, which was once approved with a neoclassical design and its ground floor was also executed. This was an opportunity to reconsideration the project and find a new identity based on modern architectural standards inspired by the local architecture of the region. This opportunity faced many design challenges, the most important challenge was the change in the dominant aesthetics, from neoclassical kitsch (junky art) to modern art.
