HOMA II - Exhibition Hall
Client: Iran Airline
Built Surface: 2500 sqm
Located in Tehran’s Iran airline business area, next to terminal 1 and airport street. The HOMA II office building is among the first of the new projects to be built for growing creative business sector in this preliminary industrial and business district.
Conceived as a series of vertically stacked plates off-set at each level with connecting curved elements, a central atrium rises through all levels to bring natural light into the center of the building. Balconies at each level project into the atrium and correspond to the displacement of the outer envelope.
The service core ring around the atrium, together with an additional bay of columns close to the outer envelope of building, provides the structure and the off-set floor-plates are balances between the opposite sides of the building. In some zones, columns are removed and replaced with transfer beams to increase the uninterrupted floor space for larger offices.
