” Everywhere I am, sky is mine ”
The word “Everywhere” in the poem of the contemporary poet, Sohrab Sepehri, it seams pointing home.
The house, with increasing population, lost a pleasant courtyard and the little balcony took the place and deprived us of looking to sky. The courtyard which solving a thousand problems.
the coolness of summer nights and the gentle warmth of the winter’s sun that gathered family in the open area to enjoy the fresh air. That was a bridge for a slow walk from the outside to inside the house.
The courtyards, as climate change, had the lung function of our neighborhood and a serious role in our communications, communications that are now the main problem for these days. In fact, the Sohrab’s Apartment was a model for sustainability and development.
In design prosses of Sohrab’s apartment we try to study sustainable development of a building from different aspects and give a positive answer to it. The sustainability of the building is not only related to environmental factors and more factors are involved in it. In Sohrab’s apartment, we tried to address various aspects, including cultural and social problems, energy, environment and futurism.
