Territorial architecture observations reveal the spatial quality hidden in urban neighborhoods, influenced by traditional tissues and Iranian architectural patterns. This paper was to explain these factors from a new perspective. To this end, at the beginning, "Grounded Theory" was used as an emergent and efficient method in the process of qualitative research. Then, Saat Square in Yazd was selected as the case study to explain the stages of this research step-by-step. The data was analyzed with a focus on three stages of coding, axial coding and selective coding. The document analysis method was employed in the open coding process to categorize the concepts, discover the relations among the components and reveal dimensions in the axial and selective coding stages. Finally, based on Strauss and Corbin's ideas, the paradigmatic pattern was organized as follows: 1) Casual variables, 2) Contextual variables, 3) Mediating variables, 4) Axial phenomenon or category, 5) Strategies, and 6) Outcomes. Findings of this research suggested that the overview of physical structure and proper spatial orientation leads to detection of factors such as introversion, the possibility of behavioral variation in space (flexibility), the appearance of religious symbols, physical contradictions, physical proportions, spatial- mental imagination, sense of attachment, spatial stability, reminiscence and nostalgia of a space.
