Climate House

Climate House,Tehran

Located in the north of Tehran, this is a prototype courtyard house designed in association with Pierre d'Avoine Architects to reduce the use of energy by more than 90 per cent by introducing new construction technologies to be used in residential buildings in Iran. A key point about the project was the use of north and south courtyards to create a passive cooling system. As well as the main house, the complex includes a number of other functions including exhibition spaces.

How does diversity of people reveal itself at work? Every context, culture, identity and social practice implies an architecture practice which is responsive to these needs, and thus the more diverse people are the richer work is.
Who are your role models who inspire you? Our projects are mainly socially orientated; thus the inspiration comes from people, narratives, their cultural identity and the daily habits that influence space and the way we read it.
How have your clients and projects benefited from your involvement? The projects we do address issues of equal opportunities. Many of these projects are about empowering the community and providing them with the skills and the training that can help in sustaining their spaces, identity and social habits.
