We were supposed to change the function from residential to institutional. The initial idea came from the bank function as a secure place for keeping deposits. It configures as a wrapped box with metal ribbons. It illustrates a netted texture that interweaves the chaotic urban fabric together and configures a unite entity. The façade texture inspired by Iranian traditional structure called “Karbandi” which is made of a series of lines interweaving in a zigzagged manner. Subsequently, it was rotated from vertical to horizontal radiation to emphasis on horizon. The intention was not reminding the history; but it is used only for starting point. So, as a result we have an object suspended between representation and abstraction.
