Abvarzan Office Building- Blind Façade`

The Blind Façade is the name that we’ve given to our project for Abvarzan Consulting Company’s Office Building. The project, is a celebration of two contradicting aspects of Tehrani office buildings. The first aspect is the enormous amount of low quality generic five-storey infill (office) buildings of Tehran which has rendered the city ugly. These buildings are a result of maximum possible usage of space available (FAR), therefore leaving architecture with no choice but to paint and decorate a two dimensional façade with exasperating materials. The second aspect is, on the contrary, a splendid handful of modernist Tehrani office buildings built in the 1960’s and 70s with rich architectural quality and façade design that can be distinguished as Tehrani style of office buildings.
