Iran Experience of Log House

The ‘Golden Pine Villa’ or ‘House of Finland’ is a 300 Sqm villa built with Golden Pine logs from the Lapland forests of Finland. All parts of the villa have been purchased from “Kontio Log-villas” and imported to Iran. The house is now completed with local workforce and under the supervision of experts from Finland. This villa has three bedrooms and comprises of a complete spa zone, large balconies, and a beautifully designed landscaped garden. The villa is designed in accordance with latest scientific standards, and is fully resilient to earthquakes and proofed against heat, humidity, and noise. The qualities of spaces are identical with the log houses built in Finland. Therefore, this log villa can also be appreciated as a practice to enhance dialogue amongst civilizations; making it a true wooden villa of Finland in Iran.

Except for semi wooden cottage in mild and wet climate, wood was usually used as exterior and interior façade coating material (insulation) or as if it was structural components as beam and column in Iranian architecture. Though, the history of imported Log houses in Iran is cloudy, a considerable number of wooden villas have been constructed in second Pahlavi era in order to fulfill the ideology of urban suburbs development. Most of them are designed exclusively as Villas for wealthy people. Despite numerous built Finnish log-wooden house practice ceased to survive, and the knowledge and construction technology vanished after the Islamic revolution in 1976.However, in recent years, modern industrial use of wood increased as new building regulation set limitations related to fire safety and earthquake resistance structures. Furthermore, Iran Construction Engineering Organization applied new building energy codes forcing the construction industry to apply sustainable building materials with capacity to be produced with less embodied energy, assembled in short time, functioning according to efficient energy consumption standards. Therefore, demand for prefabricated wooden slabs, studs, beams and façade panels started raise as wood has been recognized a sustainable, and economic building components and architectural option. Thereafter, wood import plays a key role in meeting the demand for timber and wood products in Iran. After the revolution, the idea of importing the whole log house to the country has never been thought of until 2016 when from the very outset, Bonda property development Co.- a Private developer sector- was determined to revive the development and knowledge of building log houses in Iran.
