Beautiful!

There's an incredibly progressive architecture scene in Iran right now, with small, urban mid-rise (both office and residential) blocks by young studios really taking hold. I'd love to experience it one day.

These guys have set up their office in a former corner store just down the block from my place, near this project.

Decent upgrade. But I'd like it more if they went without the layer of vertical lines over the window sections.

So digging in a bit more, this one is confusing.

Nearly all of the dwelling units don't have windows, and there don't seem to be plans to install them. They do have very small skylights but no fenestration on vertical faces. Further to that, most of the units are 13-14sm (140-150sf) micro 'dwelling units'. It all makes the 300-330sf 'bachelors' look positively palatial.

This is technically 'legal' under code but it would certainly be tough to live in something more akin to the interior berth in a cruise ship.

Okay, so, no-one's ever gone to Panic at the Remix Lounge? Hmm.

Anyway, it looks like this building already has
  • 15 of these "Bachelor" units which have a living area, a bedroom and bathroom, and
  • 9 "Dwelling" units that are just a bed, a kitchen counter, and a bathroom, and
  • 4 "Photography studio" units that are like the dwelling units, but have no skylight.
Is this an attempt to bring this building up to code wth minor interior alterations? The City seems to be telling them that they are nowhere close to achieving code though this CoA application and that they'll either need to make several changes of get a zoning amendment (which does not look easy).
