cheungvogl: hedgehog, teheran, iran


‘hedgehog’ by cheungvogl architects

‘hedgehog’ by hong kong architects cheungvogl is a proposal for a mixed use development
in teheran, iran.

the building is wrapped with ‘light diffusers’, a skin of high gloss finished PVC sticks.
‘hedgehog’ is mostly shaded against direct sunlight, where as the direct light is reflected
by the light diffusers which reach the interiors.

the volume loosens itself out of the tight context by opening itself up to the light.
the form leans back, providing space to breathe. on the ground rain water is collected
together with recycled grey water for the complex’s water supply.
