Abstract(s)The study focuses on the identification of a typology of vernacular architecture, characterized by dispersion and isolation on a territory usually associated with concentrated settlements. This paper aims to contribute for understanding how local factors (climate, economy, culture, etc.) influenced vernacular architecture in the northeast of Portugal by analysing the strategies and building solutions that enable it to cope with climatic adversities. Through in situ monitoring temperatures and relative humidity,is attempted to show the potential of the case studies in maintaining the indoor air temperatures within the boundaries of comfort even when the external temperatures are outside the boundaries.
