ABSTRACT

Nowadays, traditional residential houses are not built anymore, with few exceptions, although they represent valuable assets from the heritage point of view and also an important part in our cultural identity. In addition, they can be regarded as a seismically resilient typology and also as a cheap construction due to the use of local materials and especially of self-workmanship.
The construction details of traditional houses used to be done very carefully, but this habit got lost with time. In recent years, due to immigration of villagers to other countries, the self-builders who mastered those construction details disappeared together with their knowledge.
This project (TRAROM) aims at reviving traditional architecture for houses with timber frames and various infills, for new houses using improved construction details based on recent technological developments which make use of traditional materials. For this purpose, one typology of traditional house was taken as a reference and considering the materials and workmanship available on the Romanian market, a new typology is proposed for new timber houses.

Keywords: Traditional, Seismic, Modern technologies, Timber frames, Infills, Natural materials
