These are the architectural structures unique to the region, which have been applied intensively in Akseki and İbradı districts and villages of Antalya Province. Buttoned houses are structures made entirely using materials in the region (tree and stone). The biggest feature of these houses is that they are built without using any materials such as mortar or cement. In the buildings, Taurus Cedar (Tar Tree) and Andız Tree grown in high plateaus were used. The skeleton of the building was made of wood and stones were stacked inside them. This architectural style has been called the “beam dry wall”. In these buildings, although the stone wall seems to be the main carrier, the house carries a wooden frame. These houses are called "Buttoned Houses" (Pişduvan) because the end ends of the wall seem like buttons.
If you want to visit the region for Button Houses, you can start from Akseki District. Do not forget to go to Atatürk Monument in Akseki District Center and watch the city from a bird's eye view and visit Mustantik Mustafa Efendi Mansion (Painted House) from Haci Omerzades. At the entrance of Akseki, the starting track park of Akseki-Sarıhacılar Historical Caravan Migration Road (Ancient Roman Roads) will meet you. Do not forget to visit Sarıhacılar Village, which is at the end of this track, under protection and all houses are "Button House".
