Mehr Khaneh

PRIMARY FUNCTION:
Residential Interior

INSPIRATION:
One of the most important design ideas is the set of stairs located in the living room; it is a symbolic, yet philosophical element. This element is inspired from historic mehrabs and ziggurats, which are symbols of promotion and approaching closer to sun. Sun is the symbol of light, and light is the symbol of knowledge and wisdom. Design of lighting fixtures is also inspired by the symbolic role of Sun, and it follows the geometric symbol of sun.

UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
essential factor to develop the concept of project interior is the client’s is an artist and interests in the Persian civilization, culture, and values, namely the metaphors of Mithraism and sun.Accordingly, by conceptualizing the design based on the styles of Loft Architecture, The majority of the interior is finished with a smooth, raw concrete. Everything from the walls to the floor and even the ceiling. But the cold touch of the cement is balanced with the addition of natural wood textures found in the furniture and extending to the quaint sun room adjacent the kitchen. In the space right in front of the kitchen, wooden materials are used to create a beautiful scenery with the special daylight available at sunset. One room is considered as the home office and meeting room, designed with simple yet creative ideas like using patterns of concrete for the floor lamps. The kitchen sits somewhat central to the home and is a completely open concept, aside from the concrete formed peninsula that’s open underneath. The cabinetry is a flush faced pale grey in a brushed finish and it all sits atop of a gorgeous geometric tile floor in black and white.

OPERATION / FLOW / INTERACTION:
It is tough to combine a contemporary design with a soft, homey feel but the Mehr Khaneh (House of the sun) can give a few pointers on how to do so. Aptly named for it is creative use of natural light while also incorporating the Persian culture of harnessing the sun’s symbols within decor, The ancient sun pattern was used as a light frame in this unit. Furniture are designed in accord with the aforementioned concepts, realized by using materials such as concrete, rebar, and metals. Not only designers applied this concept to the interior design of kitchen for consistency, also used turquoise tiles in this space to inspire the sense of place (Genius loci) that emerges in the Persian traditional architecture. they sat down to figure out a way to create a stylish industrial style home, mix in the client’s request for Persian style, all while staying within the modest budget.

RESEARCH ABSTRACT:
The main approach of research was to investigate the design of Persian traditional houses especially Mithraism period but in modern loft design style. In this context, attempts were made to analyze special geometry, the role of vegetation, light, materials, cozy and warm atmosphere, Mithraism symbols, the Sun, along with measurement and attention to details using pieces of evidence on constructive experiences. According to our studies, it has been claimed that these traditional architecture meanings have been a clear answer to the concept of Christian Norberg Schulz, Genius Loci.

CHALLENGE:
Economic limitations can be counted as a strict limitation to a project. But we tried to use these factors as motivator to design and make the Interiors with propitious, One of the challenges of the research was extracting the principles of Persian architecture and genius loci in residential spaces and transform it to a practical and modern language. on the other hand designers should be made an artistic home office space. cozy and warm place but artistic and symbolic concept like gallery, used loft design style but with warm and cozy atmosphere.
