The first prize winning proposal in the competition to design the masterplan of Padideh Kish, a destination resort in Kish Island, Iran, creates a fantastic and exciting place to improve and deepen the experience of a trip and remain in the mind of any visitor. Designed by Shirdel and Associates Architects, their idea of Padideh is a result of juxtaposition, the interaction and development of concepts where each one is dependent on the architectural achievements and architectural history of Iran. More images and architects’ description after the break.

Padideh Kish is the most significant tourism hub in Iran and the fourth in Middle East. Being located at the southern part of Iran it requires a very sensible and special approach. The tremendous scale of the project and diversity of programmes assigned to the design makes the project beyond an architectural resolution and demands an approach similar to a city. Thus as various group of people experience special and valuable qualities of a social life in a city environment, this project also intends to enhance this quality within this place.

As a destination for a trip to the most attractive touristic place in Iran, “Padideh Kish” on one hand consists of a flexible and wide-spread range of social scenarios related to leisure and on the other hand special events such as commercial, sports and so on. The noble concepts which nourish and support the idea of design, could be explored from two main perspectives: Social – cultural and geographical perspectives.
