Saadabaad Residential Building
by Nextoffice

Majid Jahangiri

Saadabad residential building attempts to find a new strategy which transforms the "infill" typology by recognising, reframing and responding to the design problems in a way that challenges the mainstream and changes the urban context.

The architects considered the third façade as an urban issue. Side voids and formal elements activate the facades and extend them into interior spaces. The project provides an alternative distancing from neighbourhood neoclassical kitsch which can function as a role model to improve architectural qualities in construction and on an urban scale.

This project has been longlisted in the housing project category of Dezeen Awards 2021.
