Analysis of housing quality in Famagusta with emphasis on interiority


This research studies and analyses the quality of indoor spaces of residential buildings through case studies in Famagusta, North Cyprus, considering the theoretical issues of housing and through document review and direct observations. Possible factors considered in this study included several items such as spatial dimensions, zoning, colours and materials, furniture, structural organization and lighting. The main problem in this regard is the uncertainty about the quality of residential projects in Famagusta. Failure to meet architectural standards, low quality buildings, abandoned projects, unpleasant architectural appearances and other difficulties are from other problems. In addition to the intrinsic significance of housing quality, this issue can also be significant here since there are a lot of foreign students living in Famagusta and qualified housing is one of the necessities which should be provided for international students. This research was an attempt to find out the qualitative problems through defining five case studies among residential buildings. The techniques used in data evaluation were drawing, sketching, computer simulation and utilizing photographs. The results of the study shows that almost every residential unit meets the standards of properly benefiting from natural light and the factor in which most units fail to meet the necessities is furniture used in furnishing.
