The Bosnian Chardaklia House in the Cuhovici Village Near the Konjic

Bosnia and Herzegovina has a wide range of architectural programs of traditional architecture which, according to its concept, design and materialization has the characteristics of bioclimatic architecture: houses (main and auxiliary-seasonal), barns, utilitarian architecture (mills, handicrafts), sacral (mosques), turbe, church). The Bosnian House-chardaklija is one of the most authentic achievements of traditional architecture in Bosnia and Herzegovina. As a residential building, it most fully reflects the housing culture of the Bosnian-Herzegovinian man, and his overall view of the world. The Bosnian House-chardaklia reached its classical stage of development in the 18th century, and the solutions reached will be maintained during the 19th and 20th centuries, in some places until today. Unlike the City House (which in Bosnia and Herzegovina, similarly elsewhere in the world, was generated with more or less pronounced influences of other cultures), the Bosnian House-chardaklia directly reflects the natural environment of Bosnia and Herzegovina and the social environment, socio-economic relations, philosophy, religion, morals...). Bosnia and Herzegovina is rich in forests and building stone of various performances, from stone suitable for masonry, stone suitable for floor coverings to stone slabs suitable for roofing. This fact is directly reflected in the generation of the spatial concept of the house, its construction and materialization. The presented examples of the Bosnian House-chardaklia in Cuhovici near Konjic keep the basic concept of the developed type of this house, but in their architectural-spatial concept it is more modest (rooms are smaller, there is no sofa), which is a direct consequence of colder climate and domination of stone over wood material.
