Polsheer House
Isfahan, Iran
The house successfully combines elements and details of three traditions in architecture: Iranian, Armenian, and Western, each dating back to a different period in Iranian history. In the later years of Qajar rule, the house served as the British General Consulate in Isfahan. Now, after a three-year restoration, it is the central headquarters of Polsheer Associates. Brick, tile, glass and canvas were all used in the restoration.
