  • The Quintuple house / under construction

    The quintuple house is a holiday house. The client is a man in his 60s building a house to leave for his three daughters and their families. The client just lost his wife less than a year ago before commissioning the project and it appears he is still living with the trauma. The project is about 5 blocks, three closed blocks acting as the main dwelling space, a concrete bridge, and the space formed in the middle of the named four blocks which forms an internal courtyard. On a deeper level, the courtyard is a metaphor for the late mother of the family, not existing in a concrete manner, but rather by memories of her family. I will be acting as the lead architect and collaborating with Salah Krichen of 121 collective, Amirali Rastegar and Arman Mashhadi.
