about Flying Garden Villa
Depend on the history of Garden houses, the alternative tries to answer the need of society and the new problems, which we will confront in future, mainly the warmth of the earth, garden destruction specially in Shiraz as well as finding new method of design assumed as a solution.
This type of gardening seems to have the potential of mixing new villa design and traditional gardening, regarding other types of building development in the center of Iran Plateau confronting the harsh weather. The central yard as an instance was the challenge of this attempt.
New definition of building at the center of the garden not as a solid object but as a decentered building. Adapting building to tradition of gardening and new needs of the 21th century are the main challenges and raised new space idea. Virtual life as an instance and the architectural solution shaped new view toward Shiraz garden leisure life, the meaning of calmness in garden and working spaces. Different conceptual places instead of routine functions, coffee and tea place, “Sara-Pardeh” new place added to villa and so forth are some of innovative developments in this alternative.
