Tired of your home's flat façade ?  Depending on the seasons or the homeowners’ needs, rotating volumes can be turned to change up the interior and the exterior.  Built on a relatively narrow lot, this residence has the ability to turn a two-dimensional façade into a three-dimensional one, giving giving it the ability to be open or closed depending on the sun's angle or occupant's whimsy.



The basement floors even benefit from daylight because the design’s upper floors were brought in three meters to allow for a glass ceiling.  Hello, indoor pool!

Inspired by traditional Iranian homes, this abode serve all seasons by offering both winter and summer living room spaces. This modern design does it all with an open, perforated façade with large terraces or it can close down for Tehran’s long and cold, snowy winters
