Moving these paths from the central axes and aligning them with the sides of the central core in Narenj Villa by MADO Studio

Maziar Dolatabadi started its activities in the field of construction. In 2017, Maziar Dolatabadi established MADO Studio that the studio incorporates the context, climate, history and culture into its design and, based on studies, tries to design the project by responding accurately to challenges.
The subject of this project is the design of a villa in Naranj Complex, located in Mazandaran province. The client’s request was to build a modern villa, different from the dominant context of the Complex. Geometrically, the project process took shape, due to the restrictions of the complex laws, the construction boundary on the land was determined and the project process was formed according to the features available on the site such as light, View, neighborhood and geometric features.
In the rectangular construction boundary, two axes perpendicular to the anxiety were considered, which have an angle of about 30 degrees to the north. Initially, a central space is considered in the rectangular boundary of the site, where paths in the direction of the axes mentioned above are connected to this main core and create a cross shape in the plan.

Then, by moving these paths from the central axes and aligning them with the sides of the central core, MADO Studio removed the front sided paths from each other’s axes. Then, by rotating 30 degrees in the north-south geographical direction and creating an empty space between the vertical axis and the rotated axis, MADO Studio injected the yard into the volume and created a suitable light and view inside of the project.
