Shortlisted for business building of the year at Dezeen Awards 2020, Kohan Ceram Central Office is the headquarters for a brick manufacturer in Tehran, Iran, which is made from bricks with glass inserts.
The studio has designed the office for Kohan Ceram Brick Manufacturing Company, including a showroom, sales office and a guest unit.
Situated along a highway in Tehran, this project marks the boundary between the residential neighborhood and the freeway in the urban fabric.
The main criterion was to remain neutral in the urban scale, while creating a tangible entity in the local scale.
The brick module not only forms the facade, but also forms the entirety of the project, both on the interior and the exterior.
