The goal of this research is to attempt establishing occupant behaviour profiles and how that behaviour impacts energy consumption with regard to indoor comfort levels in the current social housing stock in Turkey. The data consists of a large statistical survey that included four housing complexes situated in different climate regions in Turkey. Another more detailed survey was given to occupants of housing blocks in Ankara. Apartments were also monitored during a one-week period in summer and again in winter. All collected data were evaluated by sensitivity analysis. The results showed that occupant presence at home and operating windows had the most profound effect on internal loads and comfort levels whole year. Additionally, the transparency level of curtains, impacts the indoor temperature during the winter time. The results were used to develop a web-based tool which is going to be a guide for renovation strategies of current housing stock.


A provision model and design guidelines for permanent post-disaster housing in rural areas of Turkey based on an analysis of reconstruction projects in Çankırı
Dikmen, Neşe; Elias Özkan, Soofia Tahira; Department of Architecture (2005)
Studies on post-disaster housing in rural areas of Turkey show that these houses do not respond to all the needs of users. After the earthquake of June 2000, 1,221 permanent post-disaster houses (PDH) were erected in the villages of Çankırı. Some of these PDH were built with Typical Designs while others were custom-designed for the beneficiaries who had rejected the Typical Designs of the Ministry of Public Works and Settlement. The aim of this study was to pinpoint those factors of the PDH which led to sat...
A critical assessment for reuse of traditional dwellings as "Boutique Hotels" in Urgup
Can, Şükran Güneş; Özgönül, Nimet; Department of Architecture (2007)
Traditional dwellings have been exposed to environmental factors due to the increasing concentration in urban areas or reusing the dwellings for a different function that brings more profit. Tourism is one of the most important reasons for this transformation. Cappadocia is one of the regions where the transformation of historical structures into tourism facilities is common. In the last 5-10 years the concept of tourism and hotel management has changed and dwellings themselves were transformed to hotels an...
The effects of Turkish disaster regulations on architectural design
Özyıldıran, Güler; İmamoğlu, Vacit; Department of Architecture (2007)
The aim of this study is to examine the role of ‘Turkish Disaster Regulations’ on architectural design. Although the preliminary aim of Turkish disaster regulations is to provide knowledge for designers and builders to control structural and constructional system of buildings that can resist disasters in the pre-disaster period, these regulations can create some restrictions for architects in their design process. Following an analytical examinations of Turkish disaster regulations that have been developed ...
Assessing thermal performance of office building envelopes : a case study on energy efficiency
Sürmeli, Ayşe Neşen; Elias Özkan, Soofia Tahira; Department of Building Science in Architecture (2004)
In this study, the energy conservation potential of selected retrofitting interventions on an office building were investigated, on the basis of which some rational strategies for the improvement of building envelopes in terms of energy, environment and comfort design were proposed. Examined were various measures on envelope constructions that can be retrofitted to existing buildings. By using simulation techniques, the effectiveness of such measures in reducing energy consumption and environmental threat w...
