Faraneh Sahraiyan, EgeUluca Tümer

The term of adaptive reuse is determined as the reuse of old buildings for new purposes. This action has social, environmental and economic benefits for cities and their inhabitants. There are many industrial buildings in Famagusta, Cyprus having high potential for reuse. Unfortunately, the industrial buildings in Famagusta, mostly from early 20th century, are vacant or don’t have the appropriate functions. The main aim of this paper is to evaluate the potential of industrial buildings and develop an adaptive reuse model for Tenten factory, selected as a case study for this research. The methodology which is used for this study is qualitative research such as review of the literature about adaptive reuse, sketching and mapping of the building and assessment of the features of the building for proper adaptive reuse opportunities. Finally, this study aims to discuss sustainability in adaptive reuse of industrial building.
