With the aim of leaving the existing structure as much intact as possible, this café in Teheran was placed in the former pool of the building. Its name, Didar, which is the Persian word for visit, implies the desire to offer visitors a close encounter with nature. That is why the entire café is enclosed with glass; to connect inside and outside and make the surrounding environment part of the overall design. In order to increase the impression of being outdoors, the height of the elegant, modern furniture is level with the edge of the pool. Additionally, all surfaces harmoniously match the preserved stone tiling.
