Keivani Architects, Iran : This project, designed by Iranian studio Keivani Architects, was heavily influenced by Iranian traditional architecture. They used a special type of window called Orsi, made of wooden lattice and stained glass which was very effective when it came to climatic and natural light control.

Keivani Architects said, “We tried to make a modern Orsi window, with the aim of creating a space with an Iranian spirit or Genius loci which respects both mental and biological needs of the users.

Matching slatted sunshades on the façade can be raised over the windows to provide control of the natural light. The architects had to work within an economic situation in Iran that has been difficult ever since sanctions were imposed as a result of Iran’s nuclear policies. “Economic limitations, authorities and municipality potentially can be counted as a strict limitation to a project,” said the architects. “But we tried to use these factors as a motivator to design and make the building with propitious, recyclable, and native materials.”
