Shahrak - e - Namak Abroud is a touristic village and has an aerial tramway which starts at the sea level near the shores of the Caspian Sea and ends on the top of the Alborz heights crossing dense forest area of northern Iran. There are numerous villa cities around it which form a vacation region for the people of Tehran.Located 12 km from East Chalus is new Namak Abroud township covering some 650 hectares, with the Caspian sea on its north and Madoban (the Alborz) on its south. Approximately 200 hectare violet and box-tree parks made the area very spectacular.
Design Strategy: In this project, there was an existing structure with another organization. At first, the organization of the building Changed the building organization then the parking Eliminated from the project. Also, stacked plazas added to the volume. Then Public spaces connecting the ground floor to the roof. Eventually, the flat roof transformed into a dynamic public plaza and hospitality. We also keep the existing trees.
The project endeavored to adhere to these laws in the belief that understanding indigenous art understands man’s relationship with nature itself. This fundamental outlook is not implemented in a naively formal or superficially visual level, but manifests itself within the most basic and formative components of the original design and it’s interaction with the site and surrounding natural elements.Exterior terraces as a free platforms (plaza) for cultural events and performances , from ground floor to the roof can change and atrract the flowing of people and make a connection between local people and Namak abroud’s tourists.
