The aim of this paper is to show, through an overview of the field of application of wood, how wood stands, as a means of materialization, in relation to other factors that determine the oriental-type town house in Sarajevo. We especially want to highlight those places in the spatial structure of the house where wood, as an authentic material of the climate, influenced some materialization solutions, as well as places where specific requirements (primarily those from the spiritual sphere) reached for wood as the most suitable material for the realization of the desired architectural expressions. The paper presents examples of oriental-type townhouses in Sarajevo that have been preserved to this day. In the end, our wish is to bring the essence of this architecture closer to the scope of this work, so that with construction today and tomorrow we can achieve continuity with tradition, that is, those values that are still relevant for us today
