Summary/Abstract: In this article I defend the productive quality of the phenomenological method. For this purpose, I consider its application to one specific example taken from the phenomenology of an architectural element. I make a phenomenological description and a hermeneutic interpretation of the pediment as an architectural element of Bulgarian Revival houses. The legitimacy of the phenomenological method is derived from the thesis of the metaphysical distinctiveness of the human being as a modal being. I support Professor Milko Bichev’s thesis that the distinctive pediment of the Plovdiv-style house is baroque in character.
