Vernacular timber houses of Uzungöl: examining / analyzing them in their re-functioning process

Çiçek, Ümit Gökhan
The aim of this study is to define structural and architectural features of vernacular houses in Uzungöl, town of Çaykara, Trabzon and to determine intervention types of houses in order to prevent loosing original architectural characteristics. For this purpose, the studies that were carried out about the history, geographical/physical character, settlement pattern and socio-economic character of the region in general and the district of the study area were surveyed. To be able to take reliable results, a study area, which has a representative character, was defined. All registered houses in the study area were surveyed and building characteristics of Uzungöl were identified. Beside gathering information, all surveyed buildings was documented in various details as structural scale and architectural scale. In order to examine the intervention character at houses in the district, all applied interventions at houses were documented. At the end of the documentation, specific intervention types were found. Values of the study area were listed and physical/architectural features that decided be preserved were identified.


Construction Techniques of Traditional Tirilye Houses
Doğan Tavas, Özge; Şahin Güçhan, Neriman; Conservation of Cultural Heritage in Department of Architecture (2021-12-10)
Studies on construction techniques of historical buildings are critical in terms of giving significant information about the architecture, structure, material selection, spatial organization, relationship with the place, and creative architectural solutions against existing problems of the studied buildings. Tirilye houses, which form the historical fabric of the settlement, represent the tradition of the period with their construction systems, material choices, and architectural features. This study aims t...

PARLAK TEMİZEL, NERİS; Bilsel, Fatma Cânâ (2020-08-31)
The Italian school of typo-morphology reformulates the definition of architectural type in such a way that it refers to a set of quantitatively dominant buildings with common formal characteristics as a result of certain factors effective in particular geography and in particular period. Due to their physical dominance in the urban context, in-depth analysis of architectural types is crucial to have a better understanding of any city.This study is concerned with the transformation process of the planned cap...

Re-reading the social context of apartment block development in İstanbul: 1889-1922
Aktuna, Zeynep; Güvenç, Murat; Department of City and Regional Planning (2003)
The thesis investigates the early phases of apartment block development in Istanbul, which took place in the second half of the 19th century. Apartment block development represents a unique process in Istanbul. It not only reflects the أwest-orientedؤ side of the Ottoman Empire but also sheds light on the transformation of urban fabric from pre-modern to modern. The emergence of apartment blocks in Istanbul, hence, does not simply imply the adoption of a أwesternؤ and أmodernؤ life, but also reflect a spati...
Material Characterization of Mudbrick and Neighbouring Plasters in Traditional Timber Framed Structures
Erdil, Meltem; Madani, Nigar; Alam, Burhan; Tavukçuoğlu, Ayşe (null; 2017-07-06)
The 19th century timber dwellings reflect the experience of the past on materials and construction technologies of the traditional timber frame structures in Anatolia. However, those houses suffer mostly from wrong repairs due to incompatible materials and inappropriate construction detailing. Wrong repairs introduce and/or accelerate many problems, such as moisture problems, salt decay, thermal and structural failures. Comprehensive studies are, therefore, needed to improve the knowledge for the planning o...
