Köseoğlu, Irmak
The thesis aims to study the development of late 19th and early 20th century domestic architecture in Büyükada and Kadıköy as new resort districts of Istanbul. The urban development of Istanbul and Büyükada is introduced as a basis to discuss the architectural context and domestic life. The discussion centers on the emergence of concept of ‘resort houses’ as a new dwelling type in Istanbul in the late Ottoman period. Selected case studies are described and compared to illustrate how such houses were conceptualized, built and utilized.
