Mansion Reconstruction in Yerevan

Yerevan, Armenia
1 of 5
The original mansion. South-east view

The original mansion is a one-story building with a basement and attic. It is built of tufa regular masonry. The building abuts the neighboring mansions from the south-west and north-east.

The building has already been renovated earlier. An additional volume has been added to the main building from the north-west side.

The facades are decorated with motives of the Armenian traditional residential architecture.

The project envisages dismantling of the existing roof and construction of a new residential attic floor, which is accessible with new ladders added from both the main and rear facades. The new attic floor overhangs the both sides of the original building and is based on the number of columns faced with tufa stone. Columns are crowned with capitals typical for the Armenian medieval architecture. An open staircase, made with the use of light metal structures, as well as the new, modern style console elements create contrast with the traditional Armenian architecture.

Rooms of the attic are gathered around an atrium, which serves as an additional source of light.

Architects: Telemak ANANYAN, Gohar ISAKHANYAN, Gurgen SAGHATELYAN
