Archoffice redesigns Moayeri Hospital Entrance in Tehran

 

Archoffice, led by AmirHossein Alavizadeh, redesigns the Moayeri Hospital Entrance in Tehran to address challenges posed by its state of disarray and lack of identity or definition. The new entrance, adjacent to an emergency ramp, features two overlapping frames, with the larger frame encompassing both the entrance and the ramp, creating a unified element from a distance. The smaller frame functions as the entrance for people and ambulances. Parallel design along the north and south sides aligns with the site and pavement, creating a volumetric effect in harmony with the interior and exterior space. A security room is strategically placed next to the former building’s entrance, ensuring better control of complex entry and exit.

travertine stone serves as the primary material

 

Interrupted walls with a specific rhythm cover the emergency ramp section, visually connecting the sidewalk and street space with the hospital complex. The space between the walls is enclosed with iron handrails, maintaining a cohesive connection. Cream-colored travertine stone serves as the primary material for the surrounding walls and entrance frame. The design team at Archoffice settles upon the same material extending it to the guard room walls for a harmonious aesthetic. The facade of adjacent buildings aligns with the main building’s design, providing a unified identity for the hospital’s southern body. The frame, constructed with concrete, features an iron covering in the top part and a metal sheet in the lower part, fostering a cohesive relationship with the travertine stone due to its light color.
