I assume you mean the architectural definition ie

“Of or being an indigenous building style using local materials and traditional methods of construction and ornament, especially as distinguished from academic or historical architectural styles”.

and, if so, God help us all.

I prefer another definition ie

“Occurring or existing in a particular locality; endemic: a vernacular disease”
