St. Archangel in the village of Kuchevishte, near Skopje, Macedonia (XIV century), built somewhere between 1371 and 1389. This photo is older, during the restoration process.

Okay, it's time to revive this thread for a second because we already covered every important and genuine structure.
Hagia Irene, Constantinople.

Architectural type: Church
Architectural style: Byzantine
Groundbreaking: 4th century
Materials: Brick, Stone
I'll start with this image because we can also see Hagia Sophia in the angle which basically makes Constantinople look at least a little European.

At last the neighboring Hagia Sophia, again I've tried to find a photo where you can't see the minarets (you can actually see one part of them but oh well), which obviously degrade the building's aesthetics.

I've opened a new thread about the revival of this style, but even though some of the examples were great they still mix it with Moorish, and that's not the right way to do it, so yeah once again I've realized that nothing will ever come close to the originals. So it's best to just share another set of photos from Hosios Loukas.

Some of the images are way too big, so scroll if you want to see the rest of the building, or just open them in new tab.

I've only seen monasteries and churches, are there examples of byzantine architecture of secular buildings surviving? Considering that even in western nations, most of the oldest houses surviving are at the most from the renaissance, the few that did not burn down through centuries of wars and fires.

As an example, are there representations of what cities other than Constantinople, such as Nicaea or Thessaloniki would have looked like in the XIIIth century?

I was always willing to find some examples of such buildings, but still representatives of this style. If someone knows some genuine ones, we should gladly see them over here.
However the chances are way too small. Constantinople appears to be completely ruined, especially compared to these lovely recreations. Huge appreciation towards Antoine Helbert for allowing us to see how the city used to look like.

Mystras is a good example, although much in ruins of a Byzantine city. Of the later period at least.

@3tmk
Here is an example of late roman, rather than byzantine proper, Thessaloniki, but you get the picture of how the city might have evolved https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=i2R11kio3_A

Examples of secular architecture, as mentioned above, can be found in Mystras, such as the Palaiologi-Kantakouzene palace complex and the Laskaris house (link: http://www.skyscrapercity.com/showthread.php?t=1702013)

Secular buildings still survive in Istanbul too, the Palace of the Porphyrogenitus (Tekfur Sarayı), that has undergone a rather unfortunate restoration (link:http://www.hurriyetdailynews.com/Def...D=2622&gpid=20), and of course the Basilica Cistern.
