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.
