Where: Albania, Berat

The House of Dud Mushaxhi is a rare example of a house with a covered terrace (chardak) in front. The house is rectangular, with two floors. The covered terrace is in the centre, with a room on either side. The front part of the house has been remodelled and adjusted to the modern way of life.
The Haxihistasa Family House is one of the most representative residential buildings from the 18th century. The covered terrace (chardak) in the centre has special artistic value. The stone stairs and the gallery formed by an arcade and covered with vaults are very interesting too. The technique used for the construction of the vaults and arches is impressive.
