Climatic Conditions Dependent Residential Building Materials and Facade Design: A Case Study of Tehran, Iran

Mohammad Fahima


The climatic conditions of a region are one of the issues that must be kept in mind while designing any facade related to civil construction. Front view of the building is such a part of the design for any building which is indeed the very first part of the building which remain in direct contact with the outside world. The exterior design of the building is the most important part of the climatic design. The Tehran initiates with the foothills area so by using design in harmony with the region's climate more savings can be achieved. In this regard, first, you must correctly identify the area followed by suitable proposals in order to design inconsistent with the climate of the area. Present paper is based on the descriptive type and analysis of library stuffs.
