Passive and active design strategies have been adapted in this project for supply, storage and distribution of energy. Also, certain methods have been used to stabilize the site and to supply required water for drinking and irrigation. Since the project is located in a rocky environment, the air temperature differs noticeably with the nearby city of Tehran so that there is a need for a heating system more than half of a year. Hence, designing a reliable heating system is of utmost importance to provide a convenient indoor condition.
