located in kerman, the central part of iran, the private house designed by jafar lotfolahi and omid azeri is made of earth — the material has always been the most prevalent and important in this climate. soil, clay, and cement create a feeling of warmth and consistency throughout the two monolithic volumes, complemented by natural stone flooring.

the volumes of azeri and lotfolahi’s house are predominantly solid and hidden from the outside, while transparent and open from the inner courtyard — they consist of two parts, one for winter and one for summer. the big opening in the second level of the building faces the yard and the pool in its center
