Located in Farmanieh district, the Arian residential building provides 81 units in 12 stories. Due to the rapid urbanization in north of Tehran, the district diverged from its origins of being low density green spaces.  The main question was how to provide green space within high rise neighborhood. So, the design incorporates a common space that stretches both horizontally and vertically to shape a deep courtyard, bring greenness and light, cut through the built volume. The residences in the building offer a variety of floor plans that will suit the diverse lifestyle of its tenants. At the ground level, a series of separate working spaces will be programmed and connected to some of the units on first floor. To emphasize the relationship with its surroundings, the building has a full glass façade with shaders. On top of the building, roofscape extend in to the units below vertically, capture stunning views of mountains and downtown.
