Kiliçali Pasa Hamami
Istanbul, Türkiye
The renovation of a public hammam built in 1580 by Sinan called for a sensitive approach, retaining the structural, spatial and formal characteristics of the original building, while accommodating modern bathing facilities. Numerous changes, and layers and layers of bad materials had damaged the structure, making the restoration an act of continuous investigation including identifying elements of the original structure, and those elements that had been destroyed. The restored hammam is structurally sound and accommodates new demands while preserving the original Sinan designed spaces.
