The project poses the question of how vault bearing system which is associated with the construction of cross-arched domes [chartaqi], could hold a cubic space along its spatial expansion process. That is to say, how can a cube-like bulk both split up space and brace its structure due to the shape of arched vaults. In this project, cube surfaces have turned into dome-shaped figures under the influence of the semi-vaulted structural elements and embraced enclosed and semi-enclosed spaces.
On the ground floor, there lie three semi-vaulted designs adjoining each other which in turn include the kitchen, the guest room, the mudroom by the entrance and the wide span open area between them that is actually the public interior zone of the house which is surrounded by a transparent cubic envelope to provide light and view throughout. However on the first floor, the domes featuring the bedrooms, are built facing each other to form a semi-private quadrangle in the central zone of which is a sunken courtyard in order to provide privacy and intimate garden zone simultaneously. The disposition of the domes, some of which being placed inside the cube and some protruding it like sand mounds, renders the permeable border between the interior and the exterior of both levels blurred and indefinite, and creates a dual hybrid space which stands between this (the cube) and that (dome-shaped figures).
