United colors of Benetton – Headquarters
This project involved a mixed-use development with commercial, office and apartments located in the Iranian capital. The cultural and atmospheric aspect was crucial to the development of the idea. The tower is cut into three parts with common shaded spaces for rest and meetings in between.
The cuts also guarantee a free flow of wind which naturally cools the building. Thick façade walls with narrow and deepened windows protect the office space from overheating and external terraces and balconies located on the building’s perimeter are covered with screen walls, perforated with traditional Iranian ornaments. The roof top apartments follow the layout of a traditional Iranian house with a patio inside.
