Yunus DEVECİ-Turkey

  • Our national house - Traditional Gaziantep houses 
    Gaziantep houses are made of soft calcareous stones called "havara" or "keyrnik"  
    and have thick walls. 
    Generally, they are one or two-stories, but there are some three-story ones as well.

    Because of the steep climate and hot summers, the concept of having a yard is very

    important in architecture. The yards are called "Hayat" as most of one’s life is spent there.
