Borujerdis' House (Persian: خانهٔ بروجردیها Khāné-ye Borūjerdīhā) is a historic house in Kashan, Iran.
The house was built in 1857 by architect Ustad Ali Maryam, for the bride of Haji Mehdi Borujerdui, a wealthy merchant. The bride came from the affluent Tabatabaei family, for whom Ustad Ali had built the Tabatabaei House some years earlier.
It consists of a rectangular beautiful courtyard, delightful wall paintings by the royal painter Kamal-ol-molk, and three 40 meter tall wind towers which help cool the house to unusually cool temperatures. It has 3 entrances, and all the classic signatures of traditional Persian residential architecture, such as biruni and daruni (andarun). The house took eighteen years to build using 150 craftsmen. It is considered a true masterpiece of Persian traditional residential architecture.
