caat studio’s project is located on a residential periphery of mahallat, iran, 262 kilometers southwest of tehran with the hot and dry climate. the area surrounding the city is rich with travertine which is mainly because of the two significant travertine local mines called hajiabad and abbasabad, so the new residential building mainly uses this material for the financial reasons and as a display of the client’s — who is a stone expert — business.

all programs of caat studio’s project are connected along the soft continuous form to create spatial divisions with a variety of motion throughout the building. the orientation of the geometry to the north provides spectacular angle and rotation to the north façade to create a different perspective to the environment whereas the same movements without rotation add a different quality to the south façade. this movement was not only a conceptual but also a creative way to utilize the stone as an environmental piece helping the architects to build a cost-effective and environmentally friendly project.

  • no infrastructure, no organization, no streets with curb and gutter… Nothing but s**** from the government’s side but certainly lots of creative mind and skilled laborers that can figure how to hold all that load together without exposing a single mortar joint in any way. That is difficult, real difficult with all that heavy weight. Genius.
