Dome Room

Inspired by Rhode Island's lighthouses, we envisioned a beacon in the forest, located two miles from the Atlantic Ocean. This idea allowed us to elevate the building, creating the perfect height for a dome in the main living room (Shahneshin). We designed intricate arches inspired by the 18th-century Vakil Bathhouse of Shiraz. The structure, made up of 106 sandwiched pieces and countless sub-pieces, uses the tongue and groove technique to fit together like a puzzle. After assembly, the dome is delicately carved to reveal its beautiful details. The creation process of this wooden dome is shown in the slideshow below.
