The image of the heritage cities is an interactive process between the interior and exterior design. Visitors can perceive the reality of the place after matching what they have in their mental image with the existing form. The preservation of this matching lead to preserving the heritage places' image. Conservation processes should follow the original places' image. Using strange materials, elements, rules, and techniques will defiantly change the place image, which is the main problem nowadays during the restoration of heritage buildings. The research question is "what are the requirements to preserve the image of a heritage city depending on the relationship between the interior and exterior design of heritage buildings". Therefore, the research aims to identify the efficient materials, elements, rules, and techniques that can be applied to activate the relationship between interior and exterior to enhance the image of the buildings". The case is the buildings in Old Mosul city. The quantitative approach was used to reach the aims of the study. A checklist with visual analysis is the instrument for measuring the study aspects. The result shows the importance of the matching relations between (interior-exterior), and (existing image-mental image), which should include materials, elements, rules, and techniques related to the original by 68% in total, but not less than 54% for each aspect.
