Igol House is a holiday house built in Igol village in Iran for hikers.
Holiday is a time when work and the tensions of everyday are suspended. The design celebrates this state through the prolongation of time; it is a hymn to slowness. Inspired by multiple ideas behind the poetics of Persian Gardens, the existing terraces are transformed into polyphonic layered-gardens. The idea of layering is also extended to the interior. As a response to a cemetery which is in front of the plot, spaces are choreographed to activate the joyful relativity between the human body, gravity, and obliqueness.
