This point make us design nowadays needs of a family in Yazd like privacy, public and private courts and spaces, open and semi- open spaces in the form of today needs of a family. With respect to the two west and north faces of the lot and climatic analysis, and the western face being longer, we concluded that most of the spaces will receive sunlight from west side, facing the street. Finally with manipulation a skin, we reached to spaces between the skin and the building as semi- open yet covered spaces that supply privacy while adding area to the house.
For example, we transformed the issue of windows overlooking the street into windows overlooking the courtyard. The skin is prolonged on the western face with same height to the building that provides shadow on the west side. In addition, we located the residential western spaces behind the skin and by creating a corridor, not only providing daylight but also heightening the physical connection to the courtyard and amplifying the house entrance. Inside of the house there was a high atrium which we applied as a filter to divide the house into northern and southern areas that the northern part contains private spaces like kitchen, living room, and bedrooms while the southern houses public spaces like guest room and hall overlooking the courtyard.
