I-Land (Sarzamin Iranian) with an area of 1400 hectares, located 35 kilometres outside of Tehran on
the Tehran-Saveh highway and as a Special Economical Zone (Zarandieh SEZ), looks forward of the
day where as a new hub for recreation & tourism in the Country, provides various services to all
Iranian families and also International tourists.
The plan is built around a master axis reserved to pedestrians, which crosses the whole area, giving access to the required functions, including playing and resting, eating, praying, shopping, all while taking a stroll.
At the western end of the axis is located the vehicle’s repair and refueling area; at the opposite eastern end stands out the imposing and large sails covering the hotel and restaurant complex. On the top of the 55 meters high sails structure,
is located a panoramic deck allowing a comprehensive view over the Iranian-Land, including the F1 race track. Both the restaurant and the hotel internal spaces are distributed on the vertical axis, offering a charming and welcoming experience to guests and diners alike.
