Preserving the remains of the Nasiri legacy of Shahrestanak, restoring all available materials and honestly reconstructing everything that has been lost by replacing the role of the building's original architects to preserve the cultural, social and spatial fame of this place due to the temporary qualities of events in the area and its historical access (the Nasiri way) to this natural geography, so that it is possible to return to the social and economic cycle of the country while restoring its spatial cultural validity. A process that corresponds to the international will of the exploiter and results from our local and national capabilities has a positive effect on the gross national product (GNP) of the active force and brings our spatial heritage back into the country's space cycle in a believable and creatively way, to strengthen our national pride. The palace of Shahrestanak is a heritage from the latter half of Naser al-Din Shah’s life. Where Qajar architecture is reunited with imported architecture from the west. This place is both a narrator of part of the Nasiri history and culture and part of Iranian culture and history, a palace that was built due to its geographical conditions and access to this historical landscape with a more limited facilities than other Qajar buildings. Gradually, with the demolition of the building over the past hundred years, the intangible (spiritual) legacy of this building has been forgotten and the restoration of recent years has been left incomplete, so that finally the manor had in a unique landscape of the complex more appearance in the Pahlavi dynasty. This heritage is recognized in two dimensions. The historical dimension and the exact knowledge of the historical layers near and far, the architecture, which is not only the architectural heritage but also the surrounding landscape, the Nasiri way street and its access, climate and geography of Central Alborz and the architecture of Nasiri Tents, which generally attach more importance to this complex than architecture, and the restoration of the individual building extended to the restoration of the historical context of a neighborhood and also a sociocultural knowledge of the Nasiri heritage of Shahrestanak as imigration of mass ceremonies, the summer grazing, traditional bathing and restoration of health as well as other events associated with this complex are directly related to the space. Knowledge of transport heritage, logistics, lifestyle und etc. This, together with the spatial heritage, has made it possible to present it in today's language in order to learn useful lessons to develop the plan with a clear strategy in the three areas of restoration, Rebuild and revive accession.
