Principles and proposals for conservation and adaptive reuse of traditional depot buildings in Ayvalık

Özahi, Aslı
For a district like Ayvalık, which has a very strong industrial history, depot buildings are located within the historic commercial area and they are the heritage of the production process in the memories of inhabitants. This thesis offers a flexible modular design solution for the interiors of depot buildings and conserves them without intervening in historic building structures. With this approach, it is aimed to use the buildings as a shell and utilize them in a functional manner with reversible design strategies. The proposal will be developed according to the obtained parameters, from field surveys that were carried out for eight different depot buildings and modular design principles with respect to reversible design ideas.
