Kula houses are structures in the form of the houses called Turkish Houses that can be seen in many regions which have been under the rule of the Ottoman Empire in the 18th century. They constitute a rich example of Ottoman architecture and decorative arts with architectural arrangements in terms of planning, structure and aesthetic arrangement with the use of techniques such as wood, plaster and pencil works. Kula houses, which are products of an Ottoman architectural tradition that has continued in the 19th century as well, carry the typical Ottoman urban pattern to our day quite successfully.
Kula is a monumental city that has survived until today thanks to various reasons. The presence of houses as typical, undisturbed examples of old urban settlement setting in architectural aspect, and documentary value of these characteristics give Kula the “Monument City” feature. Kula is actually considered to be a fortress due to the layout of buildings and location names as "Demircikapı”, “Seherkapı". Therefore, houses in Kula have a tight texture view by being intertwined. Even the streets are covered with roofs of houses. As a result, it gives an organic appearance to the streets where Kula Houses are located. In Kula, living is directly connected to streets. Every house has a window which overlooks the street. Besides, the presence of gardens should be kept in mind.
