    Default The Fruit House

    The Fruit House, a modern home in Gorgan, Iran, owned by Ahmad Aliabadi and his wife, Sara, offers a retreat from the tension of the city. "I come here to escape, said Mrs. Aliabadi, a therapist. "I wanted this to be another life, more simple than in Tehran."


    The house has a skylight in the rear, a common element in Iranian architecture, which often does not have many windows.






    The two bedrooms face out into a very small rear garden. The master bedroom, left, is decorated with only a rug; at night, the Aliabadis bring out a thin mattress and cover it with blankets and an embroidered coverlet. In their son's bedroom, right, there is a low table, where the Aliabadis play cards.



    In Iran, many designs include a water element. Mr. Aliabadi in the garden area next to the family's own water feature, a shallow pool made of yellow tile

    There's "simple" and there's unfinished. Where's the furniture?

    I know my idea of escape is hard floors, no furniture, and oranges.

    If they added just a few more (softer) things, I would like it okay. That round space with the skylight is really cool.

    i like it. it's missing a few things but i like the overall spartan feel of it. it would be great as a weekend home.
