Aban House, Iran: Isfahan Property

On a narrow rectangular site in the heart of Isfahan’s dense historic centre, the three-storey house for two architects and their newborn daughter is arranged around three open courtyards.

This three-storey family house was designed to blend into the historic neighbourhood:

The ground-floor kitchen is the nucleus of the house; the living room is located on the first floor, and bedrooms on the upper floor; a terrace on the roof provides expansive views over Isfahan.

The kitchen is located at the heart of the house and provides a space for family members and friends to share quality time together:

The frame structure of the house is clad entirely with handmade local ochre-coloured brick laid in a variety of horizontal and vertical patterns.

An undefined space where the family members can read, relax or simply look out of the window:

The interior spaces are organised around three different courtyards, thus providing more light and interaction with the exterior than the traditional central courtyard model:

The exterior façade is blind, while all of the interior spaces enjoy abundant lighting from the three courtyards.
