I was drafted at the time and serving in the building department
of Iran Air Force when my dear friend and colleague Farokh Malek, whose desk was next to mine in the same office, introduced
me to Mr. Mafi the owner of the property.
At the time I was fascinated
by Archigram and inspired by Hi-Tech architecture and slick industrial look of buildings like Pompidou Center. Thus
I thought this building, although very small, would be a proper context to apply some Hi-Tech looks. I sold my design
to the client by simulating big barrels of Abadan refinery.
