This paper aims to explore the relationship between concepts such as culture, ecology, life style, built environment and resource utilization. The research area of the paper concentrates on the context of two villages located in Storm Valley of the Black Sea region of northern Turkey. Due to cultural differences, the villages reflect distinctive physical and social choices along with different utilization of the available natural resources. In this research, it is emphasized that regardless of its scale, the physical environment is independent from neither the socio-cultural group of behaviours and choices nor the ecological milieu of the habitat. In this sense, the inhabitants of the two villages of our research have altered the physical settlement of the environment. Hence, this research shows that the two different cultures living in the Storm Valley, present different identities, life-styles, habits, choices and ecological adaptation strategies. Spatial organizations of the villages are also differentiated in semantic, syntactic and pragmatic ways.
