Text description provided by the architects.

3 friends’ villaEtudes for ‘3friends’ villa were based on the project’s special challenge. Three old friends wanted to have three villas constructed on adjacent properties they had bought earlier. They wanted their villas to have common gathering and party spaces as well as separate private spaces for each villa. The plots are in Chai-Bagh villa town by Ab-Pari hillside, enjoying a beautiful landscape and a far view of Caspian Sea shoreline.

While the whole villa town was design for freestanding villas, the ‘3friends’ villa blocks attached to each other, adhere to central Iran’s urban patterns where blocks of family buildings gather around to create an interior and private courtyard. After reviewing different composition alternatives on volumes and how they create cozy private spaces while leaving other areas for communal use, the design went through to have these private and communal spaces arranged in a way not to intrude each other.

Accordingly, there are two kinds of yards designed; some are elevated on the roof top of the ground floors, accessed only from within each villa, considered to be the more private yards;
and others are communal yards on the ground floor used by everyone. The second yard also accommodates parking spaces for automobiles.
