Mardin stone houses are built with high ceilings that protect against the cold in winter and the heat of summer.

They also protect against harsh climates with their 4-meter-long walls.

Each of the historic houses of Mardin has a terrace overlooking the terrace of the other houses, enabling socialization.

It consists of two main sections called “harem” and “selamlık”. They are designed in L or U shape, in which the rooms of the houses are open to the common courtyard or terrace.

The region dates back to 4500 BC. Within the scope of the Sustainable Tourism project, the construction of exterior facades of different workplaces in the city continues to be identical to each other.
