Corridor (Dolab)

Dolab is one of the elements of traditional Iranian architecture in all the old houses of Isfahan, which are built in the heart of thick mud walls and have two small wooden doors, which are called Dolab. A part of the room or the yard is the house that has been used as a wall closet in the past and present. In the past, cupboards were used as storage for wheat, barley, grains, as well as food such as bread, minced meat (cooked meat), and the cupboard shelf was used to store nutmeg, nuts, and other household items. When you get to the old houses guest in Iran, especially the Kianpour house, be sure to visit these elements of Iranian architecture and lovely wall cupboards.


In examining old houses, we come across rooms that are located in the most hidden part of the house and behind the main rooms, which are called kitchens. That is, to cook food and bread. This kitchen is also was built aside from a smoky or wood-burning room.

The interior design of this complex is such that platforms are built around it, under which kitchen utensils are placed, and with niches that are used for both utensils and cooking utensils. There are clay stoves and iron tripods that are used to cook firewood in copper utensils such as Kamjdan, Timcheh and other utensils. On the other side of the kitchen is a bakery oven that is used for baking bread. Next to it is a firewood depot or hedge grater.

The skylight of this kitchen is provided by holes that are located on the roof and are in different shapes. Only in the dark of night, small lights and candles are used to illuminate its central core.


The roof is a bold part of living space in Iranian architecture and in addition to having complex and beautiful volumes, it was also used as a yard. In old houses, the roof is raised to about one and a half meters and a kind of yard is created on the roof, which was used for sleeping on summer nights. Also, these walls have a secondary climatic role by shading a part of the roof at different times of the day. Great for rest and sleep.
