Cuadro Residential Building
Cuadro is a residential building located on Kish island. The client ordered this project in 2018 with 6 flat units and a total area of 1200 square meters, on 3 floors above the pilot.
The whole site is divided into two symmetrical blocks with 3 units connected with vertical circulation in the core of the building. The pilot contains the garage and storage, allowing the upper three levels to rise above the street.
Providing Balconies for every unit was a priority which makes a pleasant opportunity to view. To make plan and façade composition variation, the middle floor rotated 90 degrees to create 2 different types of plan in terms of balcony and layout. Balconies frames extruded outward to help reduce solar heat gain in interior areas.
In the case of material, concrete is selected as the main exterior finish for the building. The use of wood at the balconies is to achieve contrast with the rest of the volume. The natural look of wood material also brings color and variation in combination with concrete and transparent windows. Proportion is given careful consideration while composing each material to one another to create a pleasant combination in façade design.
