From the architect. The Client Goal: is to change the traditional construction system to an industrial building system which can fulfill the enormous demand of construction in Iran. The client, therefore, wanted the factory to be indicative of this goal in terms of architectural quality in industrial building system with no resemblance to traditional factories in Iran.

The program: is a 3700 sqm production plant with a 350 sqm mezzanine for settlement of technical management team and 500 sqm for technical office and showrooms and mechanical room that must be close to and with a good access to the production plant. There is also a 500 sqm management building with a VIP suit and receptions that is connected to the main bldg with a bridge.

The ancillary building with 200 sqm area is in a separate building in the site.

As regards this project, not only the characteristic aspects have been regarded but also we have been able to get the maximum use of a kind of architecture which provides for all quantitative and qualitative architectural demands.

Geometry of space: (The geometry can make us either murderers or lovers)The emphasis was to apply a simple geometry of space to be able to meet all the prospects foreseen in the project such as the program and the required connectivity and moreover be able to create a new atmosphere which makes turn a globe either in section or in plan as well as the project façade ( interior and exterior) into a homogeneous object.

The building is located North-South lengthwise and the main administration building which overlooks Alborz mountain has a uniform glass view.

perfect , it is a reveloution for industrial architecture in Tehran!

Mr. Cheap · April 11, 2009

Modern architects have been far to uninterested in industrial architecture. There should be more people working on factories like this.

ehsan · January 23, 2009

great job !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Genesio · October 15, 2008

Very very nice!!

Juri · October 15, 2008

Nice proportion! I like street Facade. I just wonder how they delt with the waterproofing issue where the two different roof slopes connect... water has a funny way of getting into joints like that. But then's Iran! How much rain can there be!

All & all... Very nice building for a factory!
