Reza Mohtashami, a young 32-year-old Iranian architect based in Mashhad, designed "Black Villa", a contemporary detached house to be built in Harriman State Park, New York. This
crazy project at the request of a mysterious American client is the result of a collaboration with his team composed of Reyhaneh Daneshmandi and Elham Daneshmandi. The 3D renderings are stunning!
This family home is expected to be built on a 400 square meter site with a site area of 9,600 square meters in Harriman State Park,
the second largest state park in New York State in Rockland and Orange counties 30 miles north of New York City.
(a hiker's paradise with over 200 miles of hiking trails).
This Villa Noire, which has recently made the buzz on social networks, offers superb interior design. "The client" wanted above all and above all, a strong link between the inside and the outside of the house. This is why the architect opted for a green roof and a largely glazed ceiling (which can be hidden), flooding the interior with light. This contrasts with the blackness that covers most of the walls. While the black may seem hostile, it seems rather cosy here: the natural light and the materials used (such as wood) reinforce the warmth of the habitat.
Interviewed by "Long Term Info", the architect also gives his vision of the post-covid world: "I think that containment has made many people realise the importance of a comfortable and attractive home. I think it will determine the architecture of the future.
Reza Mohtashami is also the author of the "Concrete House" concept, a concrete lair that blends perfectly into a rocky setting, the aim once again being to integrate naturally into the imposed environment.
