Abstract

Privacy like security and peace, is one of the rolling factors that effects housing forms. Since the past, Iranian architecture has emphasized on the relation between building and user. Culture and religious beliefs have concerned the Iranian user to have a suitable dwelling. This effect of culture on architecture has caused the division of the house in order to create privacy. These divisions by getting help from combination of open and closed spaces, has been formed professionally. But during the past century, according to the communications and cultural changes around the world, Iranian architecture has changed as well. The problem is that Iranian users still need their cultural privacy due to their religious beliefs. However because of the shrinkage of today's houses, privacy is taken for granted. Flexibility as a useful method has been employed in different spaces to equip space for more functions. The objective of this paper is comparing the Iranian traditional dwelling with modern dwelling arrangements to set a new method of design. This pattern is based on cultural requirements and it is attempted to create privacy in contemporary architecture. Hence the method is analyzing and comparing the spatial quality of contemporary apartments with traditional houses based on responding to privacy. As a result of this, the flexibility will be described to get applied in today's compact apartments, which is a familiar method in Iranian traditional architecture, that is to create spaces with the ability of combining and separating from each other to have more privacy.
