Abstract

Seeking for a shelter is Man’s main request since his existence on earth; security and privacy were his demands for this shelter; no matter how simple or complicated it was. Islam paid a great deal of attention to privacy in every building act, as this privacy might be a suitable cure for a lot of social issues. This paper, therefore, discusses the main characteristics of the social system and traditions, in an Islamic society, which has been reflected in its traditional home. In the mean time, the home itself might possibly affect the social behavior of the resident with its spatial organization and the relationship between the inside and outside, so the privacy level may vary according to these relationships between the inside-inside spaces and the inside-outside spaces. Keywords: urban development, spatial behavior, privacy, Koya, Kurdistan.
