Approximation House
Tehran, Iran

On a narrow site in a residential area of west Tehran, the six-storey building features an entrance and small garden on the ground floor, a guest apartment on the first floor, and two duplex apartments for a father and his daughter on the upper four floors; the two basement floors contain a swimming pool and a gym. The centre of the unique façade is a planted mesh that becomes an enclosed, open-air garden on the roof; hundreds of individually-sculpted round wooden posts form contemporary mashrabiyyas on either side of the planted centre of the façade that is conceived as a piece of urban art.
