Setting the problem. Folk customs are a reflection of the sacred component of the Ukrainian people. Therefore, the spiritual values being formed during the long historical period play an important role in the revival of national culture and spirituality. From ancient times, the folk customs of Ukrainians were embodied in the architectural composition of the houses, the interior and exterior of which was in accordance with the laws of the Universe. The symbols of the ornaments painted on the outer and inner walls of a Ukrainian house are created under the influence of both pagan and Christian traditions. This allows understanding deeper the inner world of our ancestors. Analysis of publications. A number of scientific works deals with the study of Ukrainian folk customs. The description of the traditions and customs of our people, we find in the works of O. Voropai, F. Vovk, V. Skurativskyi, G. Lozko. The folk customs investigations made by the diaspora representatives are interesting. However, in our opinion, the sacred aspect of the chosen theme needs to be studied more detailed. The aim of the article is to analyze the elements of the folk customs in the architectural composition of Ukrainian houses. Conclusions. The Ukrainian folk customs, embodied in the elements of the architectural composition, lead to understanding the inner world of our ancestors, their outlook and connections with world traditions. The ornaments, reproduced on the paintings of the Ukrainian houses and embroidered towels, are the sign system through which the guidelines for future generations are transmitted. Therefore, it is important to understand that during the long historical period, the Ukrainian people wrote their own history and philosophy, the understanding of which makes it possible to replicate its best traditions.
