Koocheh Haft tan Bazzar Tehran historical small house in Iran 

Koocheh Haft tan Bazzar Tehran historical small house in Iran is one of the historic buildings of the Tehran Bazaar that dates back to the Qajar era. The old house in Iran which its architecture is a rare example of the remains of the Qajar time, has been listed in the National Register of National Archives.

Existence of authentic Iranian architectural elements such as windshields, sashes, arches of Iran, and the spatial order and complexity, while also measuring the placement of buildings in that area and utilizing the decorative elements of Iranian architecture and ultimately the blend of European neoclassical architecture are among the important features of Koocheh Haft tan Bazzar Tehran historical small house in Iran.

In the texts and documents related to the monuments of Tehran, the history of the house was not found and there is no mention of its originator or creator, and in the maps of the city of Tehran in the 6th and 7th AH as historical documents; there is no mention of the mansion.

But this may have been due to the lack of a mansion for one of the most prominent people of its time and less important than the other buildings on the map which are named on. It was built in the late Qajar era so that can be a reason for not to be mentioned in the documents.

The building consists of three floors, there is a 1 * 1 basement, which means the basement area is 2 square meters and the ground floor is 2 * 2 meters, the basement area is 2 square meters and the first floor is also proportional to the floor. Ground floor repeats, minus the area of the central hall of the building, deducted from the first floor area of the building (2 square meters), thus, the total area under the building will be 2 square meters. This used to be how traditional guest houses in Iran were built.


The outline of the plan is a rectangular building that extends along the east-west and is drawn out onto the center of the porch, with two earrings on the east and west sides of the building. After entering these intermediate spaces we reach the central hall. Access to the first floor is possible through a narrow staircase to the southeast of the eastern earrings.

The proportion of spaces in the basement of the building is a function of the ground floor spaces and, as a result, it also witnesses the hall space in the center of the building and the adjacent spaces adjacent to it and the hallway to the west side of this floor.

This work has been registered as one of the national monuments of Iran on October 1, 2009 with the registration number of 10414.
