In rural areas, different cultures, lifestyles, habits, customs and traditions, and structures with different shapes reflected these were built. Village rooms should also be considered intangible cultural heritage values regarding their functional characteristics and implementation. These buildings, built with Folk Architecture characteristics, have started to disappear physically along with the original functions they have lost today. It has been determined within the scope of the "Intangible Cultural Heritage of Isparta" project supported by the Scientific Research Projects Coordination Unit of Isparta Yalvaç District, Körküler Village, Süleyman Demirel University, where the examples of this building type exist. Necessary data were collected through multi-disciplinary field studies conducted. There is a typical architectural style in the buildings. As a result of the social value given to the building function and the different dynamics, the buildings have been highly preserved.
