Ario Choob | 2015
Alireza Taghaboni, a practicing architect since 2004, founded Next Office in 2009. Taghaboni is also a painter and holds a PHD degree in Architecture. A frequent contributor to Iranian architecture and urbanism magazines and periodicals, he is a tutor and partner at the Center for Contemporary Architecture, a private institution in Tehran that offers an alternative architectural education program.
Next Office, based in Tehran, aims to provide a contemporary alternative to traditional Iranian architecture, responding to the climate conditions, economic, socio political and cultural context of each project. The practice’s work ranges from single-family houses to residential, commercial and mixed-use large-scale complexes, to urban master plans. Over the past decade, the practice has won several Memar Awards, a prestigious national award for architecture in Iran held annually, making it one of the top prize-winning practices in the country.
Ario Choob – 2015
The Ario Choob office exhibition project, which is an exhibition for imported lumbering machines, is located in Improvement of Iran Wood Industry Industrial Town.
The project was designed by another architectural office headed by Dr. Taghaboni, who in addition to designing the space, also designed all the desks and office furnitur. This alone has been one of the main challenges of the project for us.
In order to achieve the desired result, joint technical meetings were held between the Paadiran team and Dr. Taghaboni, and during these meetings, the proposed plans were turned into executive plans as the technical issues were resolved.
Paadiran, with the support of experience, expert force, and machinery, has made it possible for designers to produce furniture to suit their tastes, which in itself plays a significant role in the all-round accompaniment of spaces and furniture together.
