Here’s an interesting design by Iranian architect Farshad Mehdizadeh. The Dayereh Snack Bar façade (Dayereh means “circle” in Farsi), though small in size, is large and bold in innovation. If I understand correctly (Google translate for Farsi is very limited and nonsensical) the only thing behind the snack bar’s façade is a kitchen, making the design all about the front and windows where the element of interaction between client and server takes place. The long strips of wood curve down from the building façade into the sidewalk with three pieces of travertine in between.

The Dayereh Snack Bar was located in Isfahan, Iran and won a third place Middle East Architect award in 2012. Unfortunately, the bar has since been torn down, but its fabulousness lives on in photos.
