Historic preservation project for an early 20th century warehouse, Ziraat Bank (1,955sqm)

Giresun, Turkey

Client/Funding Agency: TZCB—Turkiye Cumhuriyeti Ziraat Bankası (Turkish Agriculture Bank)

August 2003-January 2004; Consultancy services for the works: August 2004 - November 2005

Project: The original warehouse building from the turn of the century (1912?), modified and used by TCZB as the Giresun branch until it was abandoned in 1993. The Board of the Bank decided to re-use it again as Giresun branch office with additional facilities. Our proposal introduces additional spaces integrated to the original scheme besides restoring the original features changed or lost in time.
