Restoration of Süren Residence in Beylerbeyi
Restoration of Süren Residence in Beylerbeyi

The Süren Residence, constructed on an area of approximately 6000 m², was built on three platforms 25 m above the road level. The land was previously sloping and the previous residence was built on an evened area. It is attributed as a second group cultural asset to be conserved and protected. The residence was rebuilt in reinforced concrete. The additional structures that were built on its facades in time were demolished. The features of its plan were kept at large. Its plan, which is a different variation of the plan type with a central anteroom, called “karnıyarık”, has become clear with the joining of the service spaces to the rooms that they belonged at the ground floor.

In the past, the annex building constructed adjacent to the building, was taken back and placed at a higher level, because it closed the front side of the residence. A large swimmimg pool and structures that give service to the pool were built at the third new platform. This space consisting of a large living room, kitchen, bath and other service structures is completely underground. Above it is a garden.

These structures were built with the idea that the cultural assets in need of conservation and protection should better be administered with modern facilities. The residence is being used by its owners for ten years with a rightful pride.
