TOSE'E SADERAT IRAN BANK, YAZD

Zhair Firm, Principal Architect

2010 - 2012

Description:The project was asked by the Tosee-Saderat-Iran bank headquarters to design a branch in Yazd, Iran. They had an emphasis on having an arc in the facade, conveying the similar visual appearance of the main branch. The startegy of designing a glass facade supported by spiders in front of an arc was employed. The site plan imposed some limitations to the design, including the sharp angular line on the south side. The design made use of this angular line to create the main entrance space, and then the other spaces are rotated beyond that line.
