Abbasi House has symmetry in its architecture; if you stand in the middle of the building, the two sides are completely symmetrical.

Due to the climatic conditions of Kashan, the house has summer and winter quarters; in each season of the year, special sections of the building were used according to the weather conditions of that season. Unlike modern structures, which have copiously ornamented façades, in this structure, as in traditional architecture, the façade of the building is very simple with little decorations, but on the inside it is magnificent and beautiful.
