Shar Residential Complex Competition 01

SHAR Residential Project is located in a narrow street filled with old maple trees and a stream of water coming from a nearby Ghana’at. The emphasis in the design has been to extend the surrounding green space into the building and combining it with living spaces via the double-height balconies that are part of every unit.   Consideration of pedestrian’s view point (given the narrow width of the northern passage) as well as maintaining a visual continuity of green spaces for the passerby have been central in the design and therefore spaces on the ground level are in direct dialogue with the adjacent street.

With the placement of the 40% footprint of the project it has been attempted to preserve all the old trees existing on the site, some of these trees have kept their place within the mass of the building. 

In the design of the interiors in residential units the more conventional means of space division – such as walls and doors - have been used minimally in order to achieve more fluid spaces while maintaining public and private zones.

Public programs of the project have been condensed in the lower level that takes advantage of the natural slope of the site and is in direct relationship to the green space outside.

Project info

Over the last 2 decades architecture in Tehran has experienced absurd transformations. Lack of profitability of industries on one hand and imposed sanctions on the other hand have exacerbated an already soaring real-estate market in the capital.
Having identified their properties as a promising investment zones, land owners with lots as small as 200 sq.m (the city’s smallest size parcels) have demolished their single family houses and developed them into four and five storey middle class apartments. As a result, the city is now faced with agrowing number of infill projects whose aesthetic challenges are generally reduced to envelope design.
In this particular project, the site is located at the end of a dead-end alley and is surrounded by other buildings. It doesn’t have a view to the street and it is not seen by passersby. It is a project with no prominent façade, and therefore insignificant for most architects.Over the last 2 decades architecture in Tehran has experienced absurd transformations.
