Farman Tower

Tehran, Iran

The proposal for the Ajoodaniyeh Tower by Kamvari Architects seeks to use traditional design within Iran as a means of addressing performance criteria within a high-rise. With the intention of analysing unique aspects of traditional architecture specific to the region, they combine these with advanced design methods to produce a novel proposal for the site and our client.

The use of electromechanical devices to cool and heat buildings has become common place within Iran and the region, Tehran’s climate of cold winters and hot summers further exacerbate this issue.

In our design proposal we take a very critical view towards this, the building envelope and from have been designed in such a way to be able to control the amount of solar radiation entering each floor plate as well as reduce cooling loads through the use of natural ventilation.
