Çark pedestrian street is an only alternative as a dense activity area at Adapazarı city center with its strong relations with public buildings and squares for the future of the city.
It is expected that this identity becomes stronger on the way of reaching to foreseen population that is an aim of approved masterplans. In this new development period, Adapazarı Municipality decided to pedestrianise another commercial area around Çark Street that is the main pedestrian axis. In city center it is not perceived a neighbourhood group,quarter or a continous street cluster. On the other hand, at commercial region it has been accepted to protect old buildings in their own parcel that are built seperately ,as a plan concept. Thereby, it appears culde sacs and high dead walls. And these are important obstacles for contuinity of commercial and recreational acitivities which are necessary for central part.
At the proposed masterplan area, within conservation decisions, It is possible to constitute the relation between Çark Street and pedestrianised Yuvam Street (parallel to Çark S.) on a very long distance as 260 m. and so many dead walls are constituted. But as it can be seen in good examples in country, city block dimensions are between 50-100 m.
At proposed masterplan, the main concept is to open the culde sac for the contuinity of commercial and recreative items in the center and to propose new buildings for avoiding dead walls.
According to masterplan of Adapazarı Municipality the main function of building is trade and recreation. The inner common spaces in commercial buildings become more important. The gap that is planned around escalator and starts after entrance hall ,is designed for integrity of grounf floor with basement floor and first floor. At roof floor it is proposed a restaurant with limited dimension and roof garden. The original identity of Cevat Bey Villa at Çark Street as a cultural heritage , has affected facades decisions of shopping center. Because of this, facades are designed as a simple background for Cevat Bey Villa.
