It is noteworthy to mention that not many houses in this regard could not do a good job as Kianpour boutique hotel in Iran. Another example for a historical house accommodation in Iran is the Qajar house in Tehran.

The Qajar House has rich architecture with mirrors, plaster, sashes and colored glass so that it has nothing less than Shams al-Amara mansion of the Golestan Palace, and it is certainly one of the best and most valuable historical houses in Tehran.

 The architecture of Qajar House in Tehran

As it was mentioned before, the Qajar House has a rich and unique architecture. To enter the house you have to pass through a narrow corridor and then you will reach the courtyard of the house, the yard in house contains very beautiful mansion with mirror work, a large and valuable mansion that faced many problems over time. The mansion has two floors, the lower floor consists of a basin and rooms around it, but the upper floor has a porch, with sturdy and beautiful pillars that utilize plentiful and beautiful stucco and Mogharnas. It is interesting to know that this part of the house was used for the passage of servants and logistics, so that the rooms and halls were less open and the interior of the house kept safe from other eyes, this part of the house in traditional say from architectural point of view was called slave path (Golam gard).

Downstairs in the first floor, the most beautiful thing which can be seen is the blue tiled pool, and upstairs there is a winter lounge with two private rooms on either side with unique decorations such as Mogharnas, mirrors, plastering and paintings, European-style ceilings and walls. A notable addition to the building is a combination of traditional Iranian and European architecture that can easily be displayed in the decoration of the building. One of the most valuable decorations used in the architecture of this valuable home is the 9-ply sash with the most elegant wooden knots next to the colored glass that separates the hall from the porch.

Wintering Hall

In the traditional houses of Qajar era, the wintering hall was a large room, built in a part of the house that was sunny in the cold seasons, that the inhabitants of the house would take full advantage of the sunlight in the cold seasons of the year. The windows in this part of the house were generally made of large sashes, which could be created either by changing the direction of the sun during the day and by touching the sash glass which made a colorful carpet-like image on the ground. On either side of this large hall are two private rooms that, if guests are enlarged, can be added to the hall by opening the door. In the past, these halls of hibernation and summertime were exactly the same as today's reception halls.

The art of stone-working in the house of the Qajar

In the house of Qajar, the traces of ancient Iranian art are clearly visible; you can see this art either in the highlights of the courtyard as leaf claws or in the chisels of the house in an ancient pattern. In this old house, what is most eye-catching is the art of stone-working.
