The ‘Earth House’ in Iran by Azeri and Lotfolahi centers around a coutyard and is located in kerman, the central part of iran.
This private house designed by architects Jafar Lofolahi and Omid Azeri is built with earth, the historically most prevalent and important building material in this climate. The combination of soil, clay and cement creates a warm and comforting atmosphere in combination with the natural stone floor.
Built around a central, inner courtyard, it mimics a more traditional home in the region. The main elements of this house are hidden from the outside, but transparent, light flooded and open from the inner courtyard. The home consists of two parts, one for winter and one for summer.
For us as perfumers, what intrigued us in the ‘Earth House’ project are the unusual scents and their combination that will be prominent in this home: earth, soil, stone, wood and water.
