History of Shapouri House

This mansion was registered as a national building in 2000 with registration number 2781. Shapouri mansion was designed by Abol-Ghasem Mohandesi and built between 1930 and 1935; the owner was Abdolsaheb Shapuori. This building is unique and very innovative. The historical house of Shapouri belongs to the early Pahlavi dynasty in Persia (Iran) in 1925. This nice house is recorded as an Iranian national monument.

Shapouri Pavilion and Garden or Shapouri House sold to Cultural Heritage, Handicrafts and Tourism Organization of Iran was reconstructed in 2008 and since then it has been used as museum and restaurant with a capacity of 150 people. Its rooms are suitable for meeting of up to 20 people. Booking a table on the balcony and watching the view from the 2nd floor, especially at night, is the best choice.


Architectural Point of View

As a two-floor house built in a 4635 square meter garden, Shapoori House is different from other historical buildings of the region in that it has a balcony with 14 pillars, an innovation new to Iranian architecture at the time. Entering the garden, the big Iranian pool, colorful balcony, wall paintings at top of the stairs, the mirror work, stucco, hand painted walls and traditional decorations, together create a breathtaking scene.

Shapouri House and Garden are precious examples of their time and represent the innovation and creativity of plans, facades and structures. The innovations applied on the structure of this garden have turned it into an Iranian-European garden.


Some of the invaluable features of Shapouri House are the western (major) facade decorations, circular and designed gaseous columns, tiling’s with Archaemenids designs on the upper porch.
