about Apartment No 07
Apartment No. 07 is a family residential building in four-story and a car park in the basement located in Shiraz, Iran. In this project, we have to design this building in a volume envelope regarding the criteria and regulations of the municipality. But during the design process with the long period of discussion with the clients, this kind of volumetric composition resulted in an admirable iconic and unique building in its context. the recesses and empty spaces of the building mass create a unique form that generates a dynamic façade and avoids regular solid cubes. And by defining a different skyline resulting from its unique volume, while correctly formed in harmony with the neighborhood, it also becomes the characteristic of the street.
This project tries to offer an alternative to conventional models of habitation. Leading this approach there are only three units in this apartment, the top two floors are a duplex unit with a double-height stair and also a skylight. Exterior stairs in the yard leading to the second basement provide lighting and vegetation to this level which is allocated to the residents’ private Jacuzzi, sauna, and cinema giving an exclusive feel of living.
Various protected outdoor spaces command magnificent views of green surroundings. All of the building’s open spaces are conceived in such a way as to offer the greatest possible amount of privacy. These outdoor spaces also enrich the liveliness of the streetscape.
