3-D reconstruction of Çatalhöyük, South Area, Building 17 phase 2.2. This building is the earliest Neolithic house excavated in the 'Shrine' 10 sequence. Building 17 contained as many as twenty-two burials, and its walls, especially the eastern one, were painted multiple times with monochromatic red or black panels as well as with geometric motifs. The arrangement of internal features in the building changed rather frequently across its lifespan, in particular the location of its ovens: the building starts with two ovens located at the opposite southwest and northeast corners of the main room, the latter being rebuilt and slightly relocated multiple times; the middle phases of the building (B17.D) have a single oven in the northeastern corner; during the last phase (B17.B), instead, the only attested oven is located in the southwestern corner. The model of Building 17.2.2. includes two clay ovens in both the north east and south areas of the house (which is a common feature in contemporaneous buildings in the settlement and not documented in later phases) and red panel and geometric motif on the east wall
