DESIGN DETAILS
DESIGN NAME:
Z4re: The Green Building

PRIMARY FUNCTION:
Residential Building

INSPIRATION:
We are inspired to the iranian architecture for making this project. We have used the typical material of the iranian architecture, the ghazaghi bricks, for respecting the area architecture and for have an harmony in the area. using the green facade we have made a innovation for the area and a microclimate for the building who can have a good air around. we used some traditional architecture element like Yazd house windcatcher for having a second skin and a ventilated facade.

UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
The Project site is located in a middle low class area in eastern part of Tehran. As this are cover by the traditional culture we decided to use the full potential of local materials and culture to create a building in line with the architecture of the place but sustained by modernity and innovation. The main material of Persian architecture is brick and this has greatly facilitated our guidelines for this sustainable project.

OPERATION / FLOW / INTERACTION:
We have projected this building respecting the cultural and area architecture for continuing the architecture idea of the peoples who live there. We have used ghazzaghi bricks as main material and making a green facade in a part of the facade building for having a microclimate in the building zone and using a ventilated facade as Yazd ancient houses.

PROJECT DURATION AND LOCATION:
The project started in May 2017 and ended in March 2018 in Tehran (Iran)

FITS BEST INTO CATEGORY:
Architecture, Building and Structure Design

PRODUCTION / REALIZATION TECHNOLOGY:
the main materials is ghazaghi bricks, and we used a ventilated customized facade

SPECIFICATIONS / TECHNICAL PROPERTIES:
the bricks dimension are 210*50*30 mm

TAGS:
green facade, brick, ventilated facade, tehran, green building, second skin, geometry, architecture, building

RESEARCH ABSTRACT:
Then we took into account the other two parts of the facade using an asymmetric geometry composed of rectangles and then rotate them 30 cm on one side in order to have openings on the façade creating a ‘second skin’ between the masonry and the external facade, composed of bricks , in order to create an air circulation between the two ‘skins’, obtaining a ventilated façade that allows a considerable energy saving and maintains a pleasant internal temperature both in winter and in summer using the same principle of the ancient windcatchers of Yazd to cool the interior of houses. The rectangles in question are covered by ghazzaghi bricks alternating the horizontal and vertical position that helped to make this geometric play on the façade more visible and to match the surrounding buildings in order not to ruin the ‘urban harmony’ of the area.

CHALLENGE:
Then in the southern part of the façade we have placed a vertical garden that covers the whole part related to the master bedroom, consisting of 1100 ivy plants, bought from the plant nursery. These plants have an automatic irrigation system that has a sensor to control the humidity of the ivy soil, which is a plant that has as its strong points the acoustic and climatic insulation, ability to purify the surrounding air to create a microclimate around the building, ease of maintenance, elegance and beauty. In this way we have created a natural insulator that makes the building breathe.
