The Iranian Crescent Office Building
The Iranian Crescent Office Building is Located on Taleghani street, one of the busiest districts in Tehran. It is an office building that is related to the IRCS (The Red Crescent Society of the Islamic Republic of Iran). This building is a 21-story office building and in the facade design of this building, we faced many obstacles and challenges because the building had a structure and it was under construction.
The main idea for facade designing was creating a vital and dynamic façade by using building structure as a design element which let the structure be part of the building expression. The building is composed of one unique glass volume, where parts of the volume are recessed on each side to expose the building structure and create terraces.
The walls, windows, and building structure are all colored red on terraces as a symbol of the organization. The location of the terraces on each side is based on urban views from each surrounding street. These red recessed traces create an iconic building which makes it recognizable from distance.
The rest of the façade is curtain wall glass panels with blends of clear and translucent white color glass to create diversity in its composition.
