The Western view of Iran has long been distorted. With the suspension of international sanctions, a spirit of optimism has taken hold of the country, including its architectural and design scene.

Mellat Park Cineplex is located in the municipal district 3 of Tehran, an extended and indefinite piece of land with an area of 6,000 sq m, and has been designed and constructed in the far south-east side of Mellat Park. With the total floor area of 15,000 sq m, this project includes 4 movie halls, each occupying 300 people, and a small performance hall with a capacity of 30 people, along with exhibition areas, restaurant, coffee shop, book and CD store, offices and service areas.

Regarding the long and indeterminate shape of the site and the possibility to place 2 movie halls on the ground floor and 2 other movie halls at the basement, the spatial organisation of the project has been defined in a way to present an idea of space in accordance with the physical program and the structure of the project and also having interaction with the exquisite nature of the environment.

Hence, by connecting the rotating slopes of the two movie halls along one another, an extensive covered terrace was created which is the main achievement of this project for the city, and will be a place to talk, to exchange ideas, to celebrate an occasion and a variety of other cultural and social events.
