Historically a house bears special values in Iranian architecture and culture, values such as hierarchy, legibility, introversion, balance, and unity and especially respect to the privacy of families. During the past century, according to the changes in lifestyle and a large demand for new constructions, most of these precious values have been changed.

The main design idea behind Apartment no.135 was to revitalize the lost heritage and to give a modern interpretation of the old concepts. Thus, brick – a traditional building material – was used in this project. A combination of fixed brick panels and protruded modular frames are used to create a modern and dynamic facade. The brick panels in front of the windows act as a temperature buffer by filtering natural light.

During a different time of a day, the brick patterns create a beautiful effect of light and shadow inside each unit. This phenomenon creates variety, increases space quality and provides visual and heat comfort for residents while it plays an effective role in energy saving. Rooftop garden and modular flower boxes in front of the windows are designed to improve environmental quality while accentuating the aesthetic values.
