The differences in climates of different parts of Iran had been important stimuli for creativity in the local architecture.The locals of Dezful and Shushtat had come up with an idea to make their hot and humid days note livable. They added a space to their architecture which is called Shavadan. It looks like a cave and consists of an open underground space for living or store area connected to the surface by a staircase and sometimes has smaller caves as extensions to the main space. Shavadan is also connected to the living room by small tunnels through which it provides some ventilation to the house
*More livable
The Shavadan is usually excavated to a depth of about 6 to 20 meters below the surface.Other than the hot and humid climate, the access to the river water through underground channels was a reason for wide use of Shavadan.The right depth if the aquifers in Dezful made it possible for the houses to have Shavadans.The main purpose of Shavadan stems from the fact that the temperature of the underground is almost stable around 25 °C through the whole year. So Shavadan was designed to seek relief from the very hot temperatures of up to 50°C in summer.The chilled air passing naturally through the Shavadans was conducted by ventilation channels to the living area in the house.Oftentimes the Shavadans in a neighborhood were connected to each other so that the people could avoid the hot air and the burning sunlight of the outdoors
