The aim of this thesis is to understand if there is spatial segregation between Dikmen 5th stage gecekondu neighborhood and Park Oran gated community. If so, it will be examined how spatial segregation is observed following the use/ experience and perception of space of the inhabitants. This thesis will also trace if there are differences according to gender, ethnicity and socio-economic status in the use/ experience of two groups. Dikmen 5th stage gecekondu neighborhood and Park Oran gated community residents’ perception and use of space will be analyzed in the light of theory of space of Lefebvre, specifically around his spatial triad and his conceptualization of abstract space. The results of this thesis denote the existence of spatial segregation, which reveals itself in the experience and perception of space of the residents, between the two mentioned neighborhoods.
