Exceptional Villa Kiani in Iran

Villa Kiani is located in Mohammad Shahr region (near Karaj city), Iran. Designed by Makan Rahmanian and Kamran Heirati the villa’s interior spaces are designed to become an extension of the landscape. The site of the project is a garden of 43,056 square foot (4,000 square meters) area and is surrounded by neighborhood gardens. The total area of the building is around 5,382 square feet (500 square meters) of which 1,615 square feet (150 square meters) has been allocated to exterior voids and semi-covered spaces.

In this project the open exterior spaces are as significant as the interiors. The architects accomplished this by eliminating any suggestive distance between outside and inside. The result became a series of voids and volumetric projects that capture and define the landscape. Continuous views towards the X, Y and Z axis’s were created and the main spaces are organized between transparent layers extended by voids or semi-covered balconies. Via
