It is inevitable that buildings age physically and functionally over time. Each building has a lifecycle depending on the function and the construction system at which it has been initially designed. In the context of using existing historical building inventory in cities; loading new functions to buildings that have completely lost their function and reopening these buildings to usage become important socially, economically and culturally. By preserving the cultural and historical values of Afyonkarahisar city and ensuring its functional sustainability; cultural identity of the city is formed and the quality of life increases. Within the borders of the protected area of Afyonkarahisar city, there are many registered buildings whose functional livability needs to be made sustainable. The new functions assigned to a registered cultural buildings, which had various functions in the past, have been evaluated by considering the changing spatial setups of the building and the expansions of the venue-environment interactions. The data obtained from these expansions contributed to the analysis of the functional continuity of the building at a spatial and socio-cultural-economic dimension. Gedik Ahmet Pasa (Stone) Madrasah, serving nowadays as a public education center and an exhibition area, constitutes the main focus of the study, since it is one of the most important educational structures for Turkish civilizations, a living historical venue and has usage continuity.
