The Summer Room

Mossayaf is the term used by natives of Kish Island to refer to a summer room with a specific architecture. This room was built on a platform 1.5 meters higher than the ground away from sunlight. They would build windows and shelf wind catchers all around the room and would open these windows and wind towers to create a constant current of air in the room, thus cooling it. This room would be used only in the summer. During the winter, the wind catchers would be sealed off with stones, wood, and mud
