Mahdi Kamboozia

On this episode of PA Talks, we talked with Mahdi Kamboozia, awarded Iranian Architect and founder of the Tehran-based practice CAAT Studio. Hosted by Hamid Hassanzadeh, founder and creative director of PA, the conversation focused on Mahdi’s personal experiences, architecture career, Iranian Architecture, design challenges, Tehran as a Metropol city, and his visions for the future.

Mahdi established his practice CAAT Studio (C/KambooziA ArchitecTure Studio) in 2015. CAAT studio studies future generations, their needs, relations, and potentials to develop solutions in the design and construction context. Known for his work on many awarded projects in Iran such as Dream Pathway, Kahrizak Residential, Mahallat, and many more, his prospects in these projects depend on social relations that define new connections and propose novel construction technologies.

The design of an urban pedestrian and cyclist’s pathway escorts in a variety of nodes and niches to curating characters defining the dramatic stretch. The vision of ‘Dream Pathway’ projected by CAAT Studio visualized to the west of Abbas Abad hills complex in Tehran, between Valiasr Street ‘the most historic street in Tehran’ and Jost-e-Joo Park as an electrifying promenade.

Mahallat Residential Building No3, designed by Tehran-based architecture firm CAAT Studio, is a 3-story residential building with a total area of 290.0 m2 in Mahallat, Iran. The project is located on a residential periphery of Mahallat, 262 kilometers southwest of Tehran, with a hot and dry climate. The area surrounding the city is rich with travertine mainly because of the two significant travertine local mines called Hajiabad and Abbasabad. The architect delegated the project when the structure and floors plates were already built, and the client required a cost-effective project.

Kahrizak Residential Project determined to improve the living conditions of the thriving residents. The designers conceived an exceptional building with resourceful solutions appropriately sieved into the accommodation factor and serving the region’s climate. The design entails the cultural typology of a cost-effective method without charring the quality or the standard, achieved through effective interaction and cooperation between the architect, the client and the collaborators.
