Huseyin Emre Engin, Hamiyet Ozen


Re-use of buildings and their surroundings with different functions considering contemporary comfort conditions and in this way, their integration with the city and its new environments is now one of the current issues that attract the interest of designers. But, non-compliant function selection and then repair techniques, the materials used and the irreversible interventions such as new inserts, cause significant changes in the interior of the building, affect the quality of the building. These approaches, which completely ignore the identity of buildings, undermine their original characteristics and it also destroys the values of being a cultural assets. Based on the assumption of this problem, the aim of this study is to determine the effects of re-use interventions to the interior space in the 'Ispirtohane Building', which is a significant example of 'Istanbul Industrial Buildings', which is registered as immovable cultural assets as industrial heritage. The findings obtained at the end of the study were discussed in terms of generally accepted conservation principles and recommendations were made for future applications.
