NaP Studio preserves Abbasabad’s outdoor lifestyle

 

Samon Villa, a residential project by NaP Studio, is located in Northern Iran, a region characterized by expansive and fertile lands. Initially, the urban fabric featured larger land divisions with agricultural functions, where houses occupied smaller proportions within these vast spaces. Recent changes in land division have resulted in smaller dimensions, reducing the usable outdoor space, and impacting the region’s distinctive open lifestyle. Informed by the architectural heritage of the area, the design draws from older houses with expansive courtyards, emphasizing the interplay between indoor and outdoor living.

elevated mass creates an open ground-floor platform

 

The project by architects Farbod Yamani, Naghmeh Kasiri, and Arman Mashhadi seeks to reconcile tradition with modernity, particularly in preserving the ground floor as a versatile platform for various activities. Elevating the internal spaces to the upper level minimizes the building’s footprint, allowing for a free and uniform organization of the land as a courtyard. The elevated mass on the ground floor not only aligns with neighboring structures but also introduces a movable curtain, ensuring privacy for the open space while occasionally functioning as a large screen facing the city.

cement combines with straw for a modern yet traditional look

 

Emphasizing a harmonious integration with nature, the building employs a dynamic approach to interact with light and create spatial diversity. Material selection plays a crucial role, combining modern elements like cement with traditional materials such as straw, aligning with the region’s climate and evoking the spatial quality of older homes. The thoughtful use of materials aims to contribute to the revitalization of local lifestyles in the evolving urban context of the climate.
