Rezumat/Abstract. Cradle of ancestral know-how, the traditional house of the medina of Tlemcen is today in perpetual mutations because of the transformations which touched its initial structure and which had to remove important elements of the traditional space thus leading to the forgetting the constructive know-how linked to the deleted elements. The work tries to highlight the constructive elements of the original model of the traditional house of the medina of Tlemcen, going from the walls, to the columns and arches, to the crossings. Then to architectural elements such as openings, doors, as well as coverings that cover walls and floors. The work thus treated the current model of the traditional house, one wondering about the persistence of the original model of the traditional house in that of today.
