Termeh Building, Iran
In May 2016, the Termeh office-commercial building was unveiled, located in Hamedan, one of Iran's historic cities. The wave-like form is designed to encourage the public to move around on the building.
Since a long, straight boulevard runs parallel to one edge of the building, the decision was made to bring the roof sweeping down to meet the pavement, making it accessible as a stair. The facade is a continuous system made from local bricks, patterned with local and traditional brick layering techniques to respect the local context.
