We tried to redefine the concept of residential complex landscape deigning, by creating a safe and pleasant space. We believe that landscape design in such complexes, is more than just providing vehicle access to building.
Baghe Behesht Residential Complex is a luxury housing complex in one of rich districts of Tehran, Iran. It is located in a land with 85,000 sqm area .
