Given project and its location accompanied three principal point should be considered. First, Climate of the site that is cold in the winter and cool in the summer. Second, Spectacular view to the green valley and location of the project on hill with beautiful topography. Thirdly, the program that needed to provide three main zone for the project, greenhouse, guest room and space for yoga.
Therefore, the concept process explored to find three juxtaposed spaces with different functions in an integrated volume which is affected by undulated shape of the surrounding topography and in continuation of the smooth form of the hills. With undulated glazed skin that embraces the three functions, it created convenient space that turned perspectives to the south and east sides and provides panoramic view to the outside. In addition, turning form toward south east can get more sunlight during the day even with lower sun angle in the winter.
The thermal performance of the project acts in the way that cool air of lower level in the greenhouse space get heated by sunlight and hot air goes up to the upper level and conduct heat to the guest room. Moreover, the volume of the project dug into the ground which is isolated by that. This causes that during the winter it lost less thermal energy and in contrast in summer despite of fresh atmosphere of plants, it provides a convenient temperature for lower level in greenhouse.
