Sabzevar Arc House is a four-story house for a family of five located in the small city of Sabzevar in Iran.
The context suffers from a lack of public spaces, and great importance is given to privacy. Therefore, the proposal aims to provide a fluid spatial organization of public and private functions mediated by vertical access, a vertical atrium. Which, is unlike typical residential development schemes in that city.
The arc ending at the fourth floor, in addition to aiding in vertical and spatial organization, is a representative of the forgotten vernacular, and traditional architecture of the context.
This project has been longlisted in the urban house category of Dezeen Awards 2021.
