Hitra Office Building by Hoobadesign group
Parham Taghioff

Hoobadesign group has created an office building in the capital of Iran with improved natural lighting and redefined flow.

The project is in the Velenjak neighbourhood of Tehran at the intersection of two main streets and is an adapted structure that sees the conventional layout reimagined to maximise light flow without compromising on existing space.

The optimisation of the natural lighting and view was created by relocating the central void to the surface, connecting people to the office zone through the welcoming entrance.

New material was employed to further amplify the design – the outer porous skin formed by the combination of brick and torque metal frames creates modules that enable gradient openings on the façade, taking the principle of the inherited monolithic architecture of the past one step further.

This project has been longlisted in the business building category of Dezeen Awards 2022.
