Kianpour historical house

At the beginning of this article and before talking about Kianpour boutique hotel, it is noteworthy to mention that the oldest pattern in residential building is the pattern of four Chefteh or four Sofeh, which, in Iranian architecture, they are also called four houses or four sides.

In traditional Iranian architecture, residential house architecture was designed and built based on the principles of special patterns, which could be seen in both royal families, nobles, as well as ordinary people. This model has been very compatible with Iranian lifestyle because of the following reasons.
Firstly, it is an introverted pattern that is in harmony with Iranian culture, and secondly, the temperature fluctuations inside it are very low, which makes it cool in summer and warm in winter, and thirdly, this pattern can be done with arches and domes or with a wooden simple roof called (Asemaneh). The four-face (four Chefeteh) pattern is the basic pattern for all Iranian houses. The broadest type of this pattern is a house with a yard called (Miansrara), which acts as an open area for light. The rooms around the Miansara have placed on the four sides, and the middle part (Miansara) is usually very big, unfortunately, this type of Miansara can no longer be covered and is not suitable for a pattern of urban houses nowadays. In these houses, each part of the house is built on one side of the Miansara, which is sometimes three-sided or four-sided. The sides that open to the south and south-east-west are used in winter and during the cold seasons; because they are sunny, and the sides that open to the north are used during the heat because there are less sunlight.

Kianpour boutique hotel is located in Posht-e-Baro neighborhood of Bidabad historical context, Chahar Bagh-e Paein Street, central part, Isfahan city, Isfahan province, Iran. This historical house is about 436 square meters with width and height (6.5 * 17.5 * 27). It is one of the types of houses with the originality of Iranian architecture with a four-face feature and a Miansara. This traditional house is registered with the number of 29426. The main entrance of the house is consisted of Sabat, Sardar, Dalan and Hashti, Sabat and Sardar were destroyed in past (these are tunnel like and entrance designs in Iranian architecture). We enter the porch from the southwestern part by corridor or vestibule and then into the Miansara. The north side includes the royal residence (Shah-neshin) and rooms on both sides. The royal residence (Shah-neshin) is arched and gabled and has a dome-shaped decoration, which has paintings, mirror work and bedding, which is separated from the Miansara space by a wooden window with Islamic style. The adjoining rooms of the royal residence are designed in a simple way and provide the connection between the royal residence and the rooms of the eastern and western fronts. Rooms on the east side include a winter living room with Islamic-style wooden sash and a three-door room covered with Asemaneh ceiling, with moqarnas and trainings on the ledges and around the roof.

Other spaces on this side include the kitchen, well, and dumpster, which have undergone serious changes in them over the years and have been completely destroyed. The rooms on the west side also include a winter living room with Islamic-style wooden sash and a three-door room that is covered with Asemaneh but it is designed to be simple and without special decorations.
The room on the south side or the banquet room of the house is designed as five-doors and forms the only space of this side on the ground floor. The first floor of this side has a moonlit porch (Mahtabi proch) and two rooms (Gooshvar rooms) on both sides. The western side of the room is located on the entrance corridor and includes the upper stairway, which has been demolished and is now accessible through the staircase from the entrance corridor. The east side of the room has a special architecture and a wooden roof in the style of Parvazkoobi, which has been known as the bride's room.
