Traditional houses in Cyprus have a unique architectural style that reflects the island’s cultural heritage and history. These houses were built using local materials and techniques, with designs that varied depending on the region and the social status of the family.
The most common type of traditional house in Cyprus is the courtyard house, which features a central courtyard that is open to the sky. The courtyard was often used for social gatherings and as a place to store food and supplies. The surrounding rooms were arranged around the courtyard and were used as living spaces, bedrooms, and kitchens.
Another common type of traditional house in Cyprus is the vaulted house, which is characterized by its arched ceilings made from local stone. These houses were often built into hillsides or other natural features of the landscape, and their thick walls provided natural insulation from the heat of the sun.
