Architectural design for a house with an Iranian historical concept

By juli 7, 2024No Comments

Creating an architectural design for a house with an Iranian historical concept involves incorporating traditional elements and styles typical of Iranian architecture. Here’s an example of how such a design might be structured within the specified dimensions (120 m² to 180 m²):

Key Features of Iranian Historical Architecture:

  1. Courtyard (Hayat): Central to traditional Iranian homes, often with a garden and pool.
  2. Iwan: A rectangular hall or space, usually vaulted, walled on three sides, with one end entirely open.
  3. Wind Towers (Badgirs): Traditional Persian architectural elements used to create natural ventilation.
  4. Stucco and Tile Work: Intricate designs, often colorful and geometric.
  5. Domes and Arches: Frequently used in historical Iranian structures.

Example Design:

Exterior Design:

  • Facade: Use of traditional brickwork with stucco and tile mosaics.
  • Roof: Incorporate domes and arches, with a possible wind tower for ventilation.
  • Entrance: Grand wooden door with intricate carvings and brass elements.

Interior Design:

  1. Entrance Hall:
    • Vaulted ceiling with geometric patterns.
    • Traditional Persian rugs and chandeliers.
  2. Living Room (Iwan):
    • Open to the central courtyard.
    • Large arched openings with wooden lattice screens (Mashrabiya).
    • Low seating with Persian cushions and carpets.
  3. Central Courtyard (Hayat):
    • Garden with aromatic plants and a central fountain or small pool.
    • Surrounded by a colonnade with arches.
    • Outdoor seating area.
  4. Kitchen:
    • Adjacent to the courtyard for ventilation.
    • Traditional Persian tile backsplash and wooden cabinetry.
  5. Bedrooms:
    • Situated around the courtyard for privacy.
    • Each with its own small balcony overlooking the courtyard.
    • Decorated with Persian textiles and patterns.
  6. Bathroom:
    • Use of traditional tiles and marble.
    • Incorporate a small hammam (steam bath) if space allows.

Floor Plan Sketches:

I will create a simple sketch for the floor plan and exterior view.

Floor Plan:

Ground Floor (Approx. 150 m²):

  • Entrance Hall: 15 m²
  • Living Room (Iwan): 40 m²
  • Courtyard (Hayat): 50 m²
  • Kitchen: 20 m²
  • Bedrooms (2): 15 m² each
  • Bathroom: 10 m²

Exterior View:

  • Front Elevation: Showcasing the arched entrance, brick facade, and tile work.
  • Side Elevation: Displaying the dome and wind tower elements.

Let me sketch these ideas for you.

Here is a simple sketch of the floor plan for an Iranian historical concept house, fitting within the dimensions of approximately 150 m²:

Floor Plan:

  1. Entrance Hall: 15 m² (located at the top left corner)
  2. Living Room (Iwan): 40 m² (centrally located at the top)
  3. Courtyard (Hayat): 50 m² (centrally located at the bottom)
  4. Kitchen: 20 m² (right side, above the bedrooms)
  5. Bedrooms:
    • Bedroom 1: 15 m² (bottom right)
    • Bedroom 2: 15 m² (bottom left)
  6. Bathroom: 10 m² (right side, above Bedroom 1)


  • Living Room (Iwan): Opens into the central courtyard, allowing for natural light and air circulation.
  • Courtyard (Hayat): Acts as the heart of the house, with a garden and possibly a small fountain or pool.
  • Kitchen: Positioned near the courtyard for natural ventilation.
  • Bedrooms: Positioned for privacy and comfort, with potential for small balconies or openings towards the courtyard.
  • Bathroom: Strategically placed near the bedrooms for convenience.
