MARJAN MIRI INTERIOR DESIGNER ARCHITECT URBARN DESIGNER Living in a city with a long history of civilization, I had always been curious and interested in design and construction of the buildings since I was a child. My enthusiasm about architecture started to develop when I was shown to the sophistication and beauty of buildings in my hometown. I started my academic education in Architecture engineering in 2007 and furthering my education to master of urban design in 2011. I had started my second master in Interior Design since 2017. This is a collection of my professional and academic works during these years.

RESIDENTIAL VILLA In this project which is an individual house, I was the main designer of duplex house and my role involved overseeing the construction in 2015.

Concept This project is inspired by the idea of combination of cubes and applying the potential of full and empty spaces among them. Using some cubes as an open spaces such as balcony and voids created useful area for achieving majestic interior design. Because I used stairs as a main factor in a place and give it a vital role, I tried to make them distinctive by using suspended structure. Using different height levels in living room and dining room allow me to design them differently.

Living room Being in a lower level in comparison with kitchen and dining room makes it a separate place for being relaxed and enjoying ďŹ re place. Giant windows in both side of the room prepared exciting vision to the garden which surrounded the house. Chief material in this space is wood which make a place warm. In addition, a void on the top of the living room makes the height of the room much more than the other and gives positive sense to spectators.

Design analysis Since owners wanted a warm place, I had chosen combination of concrete and wood. Moreover, interior design of both oors have to be minimal and avoid to use several materials or sharp colors. To make space of house appealing beside of being minimal, red color was used in furniture

First floor For designing floors of this house, I was in charge of separating public and private spaces from each other. Also, ground floor merely allocated for public usage such as living room, dining room, kitchen and a guest bedroom and private spaces such as bedrooms, a small living room and a bath room were moved to second floor. Preferring of unique connection was the idea of bridge.

Dining room Combination of space in this area is so minimal and merely three factors of the main structure are playing roles. Firstly, suspended stairs in the right side of the room with wood material. Secondly, small void on the top of the area and eventually, two windows which preparing spectacular vision to outside in addition to lightening.

Bedroom Designing the hotel bedroom began by thinking about what kind of experiences I wanted guests to have in the room. I wanted it to be cozy, quiet and a place for relaxing. So as an interior designer I started to design each elements in detail. Design of the bed is roots in my culture. Based on Iranian Medicine when people sleep on the ground their body will be part of the ZAMIN and it is so great for their medical care. In my design, bed do not have a frame, instead, it is going two steps down the ground and all other parts of the room designed based on eye level of people when they lay down or sit on it.

Design Analysis Human`s life is teemed with positive and negative emotions. Happiness is a positive emotion endowing meaning to human`s life. Therefore, the importance and attention to this emotion is one of the great consideration in today’s mechanical society. This design aims to identify the factors that inuence the creation of space in a way who people can feel happy and joyful, be encouraged to spend time and do more activities in city spaces. These factors can be obtained through a comprehensive recognition of human’s mental and physical features in the environment which affect environmental perception leading to experience of emotional moments.

In the proposal we have tried to delete the empty holes in the site instead of intervention in the mass and also have transformed them to the public places and then amplification of their connection to each other and also defining commercial and social functions in vicinity, will improve tourism and space quality and also economics power of the complex.

Guide Plan

Small plaza

The small plaza: This plaza that has opened the field to the pedestrian way on the one hand and with passing from the way in ground floor from the other hand, will connect the commercial and cultural complex to the city main street.

Public space

3

Sidewalk

The sidewalk: Since the Polk street is a secondary street and there are two main streets in the two sides in parallel and also an acceptable access to a large empty area (present parking) can be intended as a footpath (pedestrian way).Spatial definition of the beginning and the end of the pedestrian way, specific flooring composition of local paving and specific lighting and also using un-fixed furniture, makes a varied and flexible space.

4

Kids play route

The kids play route: Children’s play area, beautiful and exiting place consists of two designed areas providing a place for free activity and touching the water, playing with colorful lights, increases children curiosity and their longing to stay in this area.


Guide Plan

Firefighting path According to the location of fire station in this site, special ways has considered for easy and fast access to the different points of the city in emergency situations. In this design we tried to use the shortest way with minimum of interactions between drivers and pedestrians in each 6 sites.

Tourist’s path This path has linked the city specific points like as a chain and made an attractive and continuous way for tourists. Location of the buildings with different commercial and social functions and special design will make suitable places for lingering during the way.

Bike’s path Safe and continuous way a unique design with facilities of giving and receiving bicycles will increase the resident’s appetence to bike instead of driving and leads to raise the public health. With use of lighting for defining the way, tourists will be attracted to it and will be made eager to use it during the nights.

Presentment of water in urban spaces

2.
