We were commissioned to look at the first 5* hotel to be built in Tehran in twenty years. The site is located in the business district to the west side of Tehran on a site to the north of the main retail area of Tehran. Designed to accommodate business travellers and also cater for a very buoyant wedding and conference market, the building is 40 storeys high and is located within an earthquake zone. The design therefore had to accommodate the potential of this seismic activity, whilst being a beacon to modern design in the area.
