Abstract

The courtyard house represents a constant feature of domestic architecture in most Muslim regions: it was, however, developed in different ways as influenced by existing local traditions, construction materials and environmental factors. The courtyard houses of north African medinas display different characteristics than those of Egypt, Syria and Iraq as they feature the most formalised configuration with an absolute central ity of the courtyard.
