Shapouri House
Registered as a national heritage, Shapouri House is an early 20th-century house in Shiraz, southern Iran, built in the early years of Pahlavi dynasty (1925-1979). Designed and built by Abol Qasem Mohandesi between 1930 and 1935, its owner was Abdol Shahab Shapouri, a wealthy Iranian merchant.


Architecture:

As a two-floor house built in a 4,635-square-meter garden, Shapouri House is different from other historical buildings of the region in that it has a balcony with 14 pillars, an innovation in Iranian architecture at the time, persiaport.com.
Upon entering the garden, one comes across a big Iranian pool, colorful balcony, wall paintings at top of the stairs, the mirror work, stucco, hand painted walls and traditional decorations, which together create a breathtaking scene.


History:

Shapouri Pavilion and Garden or Shapouri House sold to Iran’s Cultural Heritage, Handicrafts and Tourism Organization was reconstructed in 2008 and since then it has been used as a museum and restaurant with a capacity of 150 people. Its rooms are suitable for holding meetings for 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.
