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.
