The study based on the master thesis with the same title (Öztel, 2007), initially investigates the attempts made in Europe and in Turkey for the conservation and development of the historical residential district. This investigation clearly indicates that conservation of the historical pattern and an urban identity developing in time from that pattern is the most important point that should be considered. The local analyses conducted in order to develop the framework for the urban design project, in Cihangir District. In addition, it has tried to obtain data on the social pattern of Cihangir Neighborhood within Cihangir District. The urban identity of the district was also explored in detail under the headings “urban identity elements developing from man-made environment”, “urban identity elements developing from natural environment” and “urban identity elements developing from social environment”.
It has attempted to highlight the changes that took place in the physical and social structure of Cihangir Neighborhood by comparing the analyses conducted in 2001 and 2006. After elaborating the changes that took place in the Neighborhood by using comparisons between the data applicable for two different time periods, the urban design projects are developed as the “Short Term Urban Design Project” and as the “Long Term Urban Design Project” that could be implemented over a longer period. As a consequence of this study, it was concluded that probable physical and functional arrangements that are feasible for the area must be put into use under the “Urban Design Manuals” to be developed more specifically for Cihangir Neighborhood.
