The basics of project design are based on two principles: privacy and changing the typology of Iranian apartment houses. In Iran, the bigger the house has windows facing the street, the thicker the curtains will be. Not only the curtain, but also any element that restricts vision and maintains privacy. With the modernization and orientation of Iranian families towards apartment living, the body of Iranian life has not changed in line with the prevailing culture. In fact, what we are witnessing is an Iranian life and culture inside and a non-Iranian body outside .
