Abstract:   (1171 Views)
City of Kashan is located in north of Isfahan province, between the Karkas Mountains of Natanz and the Great Salt Desert; where vegetation is inappreciable and bushes and shrubs are slight. Kashan has a warm and dry climate and in accordance with that, some structures, titled Khane-Bagh (house-garden), have been designed which contained a building with fruitful and unfruitful trees at its opposite side and a stream between the building and garden. Nowadays most of Khane-Baghs have destroyed and only few of them remained empty and almost dilapidated here and there. Lajavardi Khane-Bagh is the only structure of this kind that despite of alterations and modifications, has survived firm and steady is now employed as the cultural center of Fayz Kashani.
This article is presented in two parts; at the former one, pre-Islamic revolution owners of the structure, namely Lajavardi family, have been introduced and at the second one, architecture of the building and its usages before and after Islamic revolution of Iran have been investigated based on field research and documentation.
Keywords: Khane-Bagh, Lajavardi Family, Kashan, Cultural Center of Fayz
