To minimize the volume of construction and possibility of modifications in spaces, the non-ideal but real type of architecture was referred to as an architecture that is not any type in terms of program. Resilient spaces against change of use were provided with independence from technical and access restrictions. In such a way that architecture has stepped away itself from the grid that is the new model of construction in Iran, created spaces that bring to mind idea of a house in the city.

While staying, working, meeting, training classes, meetings, cooking and eating in closed areas are experienced. Access to spaces is provided by scaffold corridors that surrounded them, while utility channels among the open spaces have made possible the flexibility of the “Typeless”, function in case of addition, reduction or change in the independent spaces, the required facilities will be adapted to them.
