VARIATIONS IN VERNACULAR ARCHITECTURE DEPENDING ON CLIMATIC PROPERTIES; A CASE STUDY FROM VINEYARDS OF ANATOLIA

Hacer MUTLU DANACI and Ibrahim BAKIR

Abstract

Vineyard houses, which set an example of the vernacular architecture in Anatolia, where people temporarily reside during summer months, located in the heart of vineyards and orchards, but not very distant from the city centre, are cultural landscapes almost not in use any more. In this study, the exemplary vineyard houses picked from Central Anatolia and West Mediterranean regions have adapted with almost major changes, depending on the even slightly changing weather conditions. Within this context, the vineyards of Kayseri, Bucak, and Elmali were reviewed, and relays were taken. Anatolia consists of 11 different climate zones. Depending on the climate zones, vernacular architectural buildings vary in material and shape, as well. Today, despite the designs made ignoring the local and climatic properties, vineyard houses show important variation particularly with climatic properties. The objective of this study is to ensure the vernacular architecture of vineyard houses in Anatolia, most of which do not have an official protection status, are processed into literature, and to be a guide to any new designs.
