The spatial organisation analysis of the 19th century houses in Macedonia indicates that Veles is a city with a large number of interesting architectural solutions. The house of Mr. Kocho Trenchev is a remarkable example of this phenomenon. The decorative elements of the interior, such as the musandra, a concave space in the wall, and the lavishly decorated wooden ceiling, contribute to the artistic significance of the house.
