This paper introduces a proposal for the architectural design of development for 20 town houses in the city of Nigde, located on central Turkey. The municipality of Nigde is looking for an innovative design for the town houses, that will achieve maximum level of desired comfort, but will adhere to energy conservation and minimum construction cost. These houses, however, while incorporating contemporary technologies, has to preserve the legacy of the great architectural heritage. The city of Nigde has a very rich history and consists of multicultural settlements. Unfortunately only few buildings are still standing to tell that great story; and the new buildings in Nigde do not stand up to the challenge. The site’s topography adds visual interest and variety to the project’s housing. The climate is dominated by lack of humidity, big differences between day and night time temperatures.
