The Presence in Hormuz 2 is an urban renewal project in the Strait of Hormuz, Iran, designed to tie island locals and visitors together through colorful architecture. The island’s color story perfectly complements the materials in our mood board, so we decided to translate the same tone in our colorful carpet recolor of Grainy Crystal by ege Carpets.
Formerly a historic port created to control petroleum shipments from the Middle East, ZAV architects were hired to develop a residential neighborhood out of bright multicolored houses in the shapes of domes and rounded pyramids. The island community was built in warm earthy color tones such as yellow, orange, blue, and green to match the beautiful ocean and rocky mountain scenery in front of the sandy village. The houses’ interior is colored in two-tone color palettes, half of the walls in red and the other half in a contrasting blue.
When constructing vibrant earthen homes, the designers used Nader Khalili’s unique superadobe technique, building ceramic houses out of soil and sand. It is a modern spin on primitive clay houses to achieve a contemporary yet historically grounded look. This amazingly designed community has racked up many notable awards, such as the Iranian Architecture Award of Memar and the Taipei International Design Award in 2020
We are using a standard ege pattern for this mood board, Grainy Crystal, which we recolor to complement the domed pyramid houses’ bright colors. The multifaceted pyramid shapes in our colorful carpet pattern beautifully translate the rainbow-colored village in the island sand. The pyramid’s vibrant multicolored sides also look just like a rare crystal glowing brightly inside the earth.
