As the site is located in a historic district of the city and in front of a church, saving a good view to that from different points of the site was necessary and no building had to block this view.
On the other hand two parallel boundary streets were different in heights and this was an important thing which affected the shape of building in the site and caused us to design the buildings with sloped surfaces.
Due to limitation of height and in order to make a good view we had to enter the ground but we used ramps and slop surfaces to minimize the downward movement.
Next idea was about the relation between two sides of the site; which we wanted this site to play a role as an open urban space and in addition to its functions it connects the different two sides of the site.
This site is located between main part of the city and entertainment district and this site connects these two parts. Therefore we had to consider some spaces for the entrance of pedestrians, so that they can enter the spaces and become absorbed by the buildings and enter them.
In fact some spaces are dedicated to the city in order to absorb the people and attract them into the buildings. In this way we considered the green plants and urban sculptures.

In most buildings many limitations are defined on your path and circulation as you visit them. But our design represents multiple aspects of choice to our visitors, depending on their targets and demands in the building. These different features can act separately and connected at the same time. Therefore we create a transparent space for the visitors, letting them move in the complex from one place to another. This variety of aspects is beyond variety of circulations. It provides a space with several levels which are defined and fulfilled by what the visitors tend to do. This quality revises the building from an unacquainted public place into a hospitable and intimate space adapted with the visitors’ desires and personal perspectives.
The expected aspects of visitors:
Some visitors might be just passersby going from one side of the site to another, not planning to visit the social or cultural places of the building. We have designed a corridor placed inside “the wall” acting as a bridge for these passers. But as passing through the bridge they would experience glances of the building like a live catalog, maybe deciding to visit it some other time.
Some people would come for a drink or some good food with friends at our food court and coffee shop with a great view of the landscape and historical skyline of the city. Читать далее
