Designing the lighting for the interiors and exteriors of Symphony represented an incredible opportunity in itself, the lighting being the common denominator linking both environments.For the interiors scope, we designed the lighting in a highly contrasted environment with an abundance of African inspired artworks. All the details were fitted to conceal the light sources, complimenting the architecture in an organic and fluid way, and bringing the unique pieces on display to life.
Our design is an articulated construction meant for the enjoyment of the spaces for many years to come. From afar the building is a marker in the landscape, it expresses a meaning already suggested by its context.

This is well executed with the original structure of the barn with its large, sliding doors and hayloft.

Villa No 30 is located one hour drive west from Iran’s capital, Tehran, in a 28000 square feet lot, surrounded by other single family villa houses. Despite a relatively generous lot, the villa is designed within the 800 square feet permitted footprint, in order to comply with the applicable zoning by-laws.
