Description

As part of the section on the Architectural History and the Architecture Values and Heritage, this paper will offer to the participants of the 4th IC ASPCE 2015 Durres Albania view on the development of the Ottoman House floor plans and its characteristics presented through the examples of the houses built in Istanbul between the 17th and 19th century and their comparative analysis with the Ottoman houses built in the Panagia district in the Ottoman town of Kavala, Greece. The Ottoman House has its specific characteristics and a huge value that has a special place in the universal history of the house types. It is a type of house that can be found within the territories of the Old Ottoman Empire, in the territories of Rumeli and Anatolia. The goal of the paper is to conclude that the houses built in Ottoman Kavala, and that still exist in the old district of Panagia, have typical Ottoman floor plans emulgated with local influences and can be placed among the several typical architectural floor plan types of the Ottoman House.
