Abstract

Until the industrial heritage was recognized and adopted international, it was seen as unhealthy and unnecessary in the city. When its importance was understood after 1970s, conservation works have begun. As a conservation approach, adaptive reuse, is one of the solutions for them to survive for buildings that have the potential to be used for different needs. Adaptive reuse examples of the industrial buildings, which have gathered people together to work and have greatly influenced their way of life in the past, are increasing. These buildings have been re-opening to society with functions such as culture, education, leisure and housing in recent years. In the literature section of the study the importance of industrial heritage and opportunities adaptive reuse them for public are defined. In the original part of the study, the Coal Drops Yard, which is part of a large-scale regeneration project in London and opened to public use for commercial purposes, is examined. Design interventions with the intended use and created places of the large-scale transformation project was addressed.
