This paper is a brief evaluation of Pomak houses which were erected between 1890 and 1950. Only ten of the two-store houses remained, three of which are still in use and the rest can be renovated. This study includes a brief description of the relationship of Pomak houses to their surroundings, their programs, and their structure; and takes 10 two-storied and 10 single-storied houses built between 1893 and 1950 as its sample. This study should be considered as an introductory research about Pomak houses. Most of those houses cannot be used today, and are at the edge of ‘extinction’ as can be seen in the pictures in the paper. These houses should comprehensively be analyzed, renovated, restored and kept alive since they witness a shared culture between Balkans and Anatolia.
