The author gives three examples of vernacular settlements on the Island of Drvenik Veliki. These examples illustrate the variety in typology of vernacular architecture in the island’s hinterlands. It could be said that on a relatively small surface of around 12 square kilometres, which is the size of the island, one can find almost all types of settlements characteristic of the Karst region in Croatia. The three examples are different in spatial organisation, built structures, size and origin. The village Kovačevi dvori can be classified as a “cluster village” situated on a hill, with houses built of massive stone walls which in reality fortify the settlement. Its position, relative size of buildings and history of the family point to the conclusion that it is one of the oldest preserved settlements on the island. The village Brda is organized along a central path, almost as a “street type”. Its organisation is conditioned by ownership of the property and families’ gradual expansions. It was permanently inhabited until the second half of the 20th century, and was probably built in the early 19th century. The village Rušinovići belongs to the “scattered type”. Clusters of several structures are distributed across the site without apparent order and are connected into a settlement by secondary paths. The structure of buildings proves it was built in stages during the 18th and 19th centuries. The only thing all of these villages have in common is an enclosed private courtyard which can be found in every settlement on the island.
