Özet

Vernacular architecture has been an inspiration for innovations in environmental and socio-economically sustainable design and planning.  Especially  in  traditional  housing,  the  intended  climatic  and  environmental  solutions  within  sustainable  design  have  already been achieved by local implementations. In this sense, as the important examples on vernacular architecture, traditional Erzurum houses are examined in the scope of this work. Thus, ecological design clues in local examples are explored by drawing attention to natural materials, traditional construction techniques, ingenious design and spatial organization strategies required for comfort, satisfaction, and well-being of building occupants.
