The home of Ahmad Matin Daftari, the young prime minister of Reza Shah, is one of the historical monuments of Tehran dating back to the Pahlavi era. Despite the fact that this monument was registered as one of Iran's national monuments on January 5, 2009, it got out from Iranian national monuments’ list in 2015.

Ahmad Matin Daftei was not a guest house in Iran. This house residence in Iran was about 383 Square meters, including areas such as reception hall, living room, basement, south courtyard, crew house, central dock and gardens and using 5-story carved brick with the delicacy of modern Iranian architecture in the Pahlavi era. This old house in Iran was built in a special style of architecture and reflects the political and social transformation of that time. It represents a combination of traditional Qajar architecture and modern Western architecture. The beautiful exterior and interior design of the house with its unique framing attracts the most attention and the main entrance with crescent vaulted brick arches gives a special beauty. A small courtyard with an oval pond and four small gardens has a special design on the south side.

The west entrance of the Matin Office building, which is towards the Simorgh Alley, opens to the upper level of the building as the public entrance to the building, signifying its special privacy. The walls of the house are now covered with brown wall paper that is color-matched to the flooring of the living room and has created a special harmony.

The upper windows of the interior doors are blue, green, and red glass, of course, but there is nothing left of it nowadays.

The symmetry of the windows on both floors, with the arches and the roof of the house with polygon congresses and brick orchards and the openings with simple framing decorations all show the sophistication of modern Tehran architecture.

Ahmad Matin Daftari was the youngest prime minister of Iran during Reza Shah. He was a law professor, and in addition to a professorship in law school, he was involved in Iranian politics and served as a member of the National Assembly and the Senate and the Ministry of Justice and Prime Minister.

Ahmad Matin Daftari, son of Mirza Mahmoud Khan, was an army man too and he had been in the army since he was six years old. He was the son-in-law of Mohammad Mossadegh.

Unfortunately, the house of Ahmad Matin Daftari was removed from the national monuments list by the decision of the Administrative Justice Court, based on the existing laws of the country.
