Tehran, Iran

Text description provided by the architects.

The main central stair of Aparat media office creates an environment which not only operates as a raising element but
also an interior semi theater seating where let the employees gather, socialize and watch the projected ongoing videos.

Draped over two steel beams, the stair structure floats over the lower level semitransparent Caféteria which blurs its boundaries by merging with the landscape of its upper environment in the office.

As a coherent yet celebratory moment, the
central steel structure is paved with the 30x5cm bricks that horizontally start from the main entrance in paving going to semi-vertical and horizontality of the stair mounting all the way to the last wall of the second floor.
This whole scenario creates a one point perspective which through the introduction of the scale of the brick helps the entrance moment to read larger than what space is really is.

While on the stair, the application of a reflective mirror ceiling would help to perceive a double height, intimate and yet abstract space..
