Roshan Villa: A Villa with Unique Materials and Transparency

Transparency is the key principle in both the program and materials of this villa. The villa aims to have minimal contact with nature in terms of rigidity experience. The exposed foundation, a contemporary interpretation of the traditional stools found in Gilan houses, strives to allow air and moisture passage while visually serving as a distinct element separate from its context.

The redesign of the sloping roof takes a modular and regular geometric form, presented in an exposed manner. This redesign, aligned with the project’s program, serves as a contemporary language to transform the traditional sloping roof structure.

Considering the climate of the Caspian region in Iran, the exercise of redesigning and developing structures of old houses in this area can significantly contribute to their preservation.

The plans have been designed freely and with a comprehensive view of the surroundings, taking into account the adjacent natural environment. Efforts have been made to maximize views of the surrounding space.

The redesign of the traditional sloping roof and the innovative approach towards excessive transparency in Roshan villa design have become critical points in contemporary architectural endeavors. This paradigm shift represents a departure from conventional design principles and an exploration of new horizons in residential architecture.

Reevaluation of Sloping roofs 

Traditionally, sloping roofs were present in villa designs, both for their functional aspects and aesthetic appeal. However, modern architectural thinking has led to the reevaluation of this practice. Architects are now challenging the status quo by reimagining the sloping roof, breaking away from the predictable, and introducing novel design concepts. The shift towards flat or terraced roofs reflects not only a departure from convention but also a response to the changing needs of inhabitants. These modern roof designs often integrate green terraces, open-air lounges, or even rooftop gardens, offering a dynamic and multifunctional living space.

Pushing the boundaries of transparency

Excessive transparency in villa design is another revolutionary concept. Traditionally, villas featured more enclosed spaces with minimal use of glass. The advent of cutting-edge construction technologies and the desire to create a deeper connection between the indoor and outdoor spaces have led to a surge in transparent elements like glass walls, windows, and skylights. This infusion of natural light and seamless views of the surrounding landscape offers a sense of spaciousness and a harmonious blend with the environment. Moreover, architects are pushing the boundaries of transparency, creating residences that feel like they are enveloped by nature itself.

Pushing the boundaries of what’s possible in architecture

The combination of these two design elements, a reimagined sloping roof and excessive transparency, is indicative of contemporary architectural trends that prioritize innovation and sustainability. These designs are not only visually captivating but also functionally superior. They challenge architects to think creatively, considering the environment, energy efficiency, and the well-being of inhabitants. Redesigning the traditional and embracing the transparent signifies the ever-evolving nature of villa design and its unwavering commitment to pushing the boundaries of what’s possible in architecture.
