One of the characteristics of a building in Iran is the diversity in the type of land use and its architecture which has a direct relationship with thinking, creativity and people's need. Lubrication workshop structure is part of the native heritage that meets the needs of people in the environmental condition of that time. However, a few studies have been conducted on the mode of operation and spatial structure recognition. The aim of the present research is to identify the characteristics, principles of the formation of spatial species and extraction of efficient elements which have been selected as a case study of Najafabad mines (i.e. lubrication workshop). Therefore, the spatial structure of the lubrication workshop was analyzed and compared, based on library studies and field observations via a descriptive-analytical method. The physical factors were analyzed by the existing maps, and the spatial structure of the case sample was extracted. It was found that the lubrication workshop has distinct and recognizable patterns, and according to space and organization of the functional space it follows a single pattern. Further research can provide a background for architectural design that like the past is responsive to the needs of people and can be implemented as a model for resuscitation of native architectural identity.
