Considering the limitation of land ownership and the low possibility of creating gardens, and also to facilitate the movement of pilgrims on the access routes to Holy Shrine on Sharestan Street, which is one of the busiest roads, the urban management of Mashhad Municipality has created multiple garden-routes in this area.
The water tower located in the Sharestan passage, which dates back to the first Pahlavi period, is one of the two remaining water towers in the historical context of Mashhad, which were destroyed during the extensive developments around the Holy Shrine.
Facing this historical site, we have tried to design a space for users to re-interact with the site and each other, using the approach of "Adaptive reuse", as well as to preserve the building in order not to destroy it further. The goal has been the interaction of young and old users as well as the integration of tradition and modernity, to keep the user in the environment and also to preserve the values.
