The project is located in Yazd, one of the most important historical cities in the central part of Iran which has extremely hot summers with strong sunlight that has caused many old buildings in the area to be designed in a more specific characteristic than that of other climates in the country. This house was designed for a young family from Yazd who wanted to have a multi-residential area which can provide them separate yet united spaces for future use for their children to live with them. People living in Yazd nowadays, mostly have the same lifestyle and image of “home” and that has barely changed throughout time which led us to reconstruct the modern demands of a Yazdi family like privacy, having private courts and spaces in a new form for a new fashioned family. Regarding the two west and north facades, we deduced that many spaces will mostly receive sunlight from west side which faces the street. Consequently, by utilizing a shell, we reached spaces between the shell and the building as semi open (yet covered) that supply privacy while adding areas to the house. We solve the issue of having windows overlooking the street by transforming them to the windows overlooking the courtyard. The shell is prolonged on the western face with the same height as the building, providing shade on the west side. In addition, we placed the residential western spaces behind the shell and by creating a corridor, we not only provided daylight but also heightened the physical connection to the courtyard and reached an amplified house entrance. In the inner area, there is an atrium applied as a filter to divide the house into 2 parts: the northern part containing private spaces and the southern part including public spaces overlooking the courtyard.
