Gazi Üniversitesi Fen Bilimleri Dergisi
Since the foundation of the Turkish Republic, different types of houses have been constructed in Ankara. These houses can be classified typologically, such as housing in parcels and housing in isles, or they can be classified accordign to the production methods. Lately, closely guarded settlements, which have been produced by major construction companies of the country have different housing typologies which have additional facilities such as swimming pool, health care units, recreational and
... recreational and shopping spaces. In this study, by the method of production, cooperatives, small budget contractor apartments, social housings and private corporation houses were analyzed using space syntax analysis method. These choosen analysis method in this study have been applied to 3 types of plans such as unit houses in apartments, closed mass housing unit house and closed mass housing unit house with additional in-shell facilities. Although there are additional spaces, such as parent bathroom or dressing room in closed mass houses, all housing spatial organizations have not differences. Separations between day and night partitions and numbers of bedrooms have similarities. It is observed differences on the integration values of spaces when additional in-shell facilities have been added to spatial configuration. This result indicates home users are using the spaces which exist out of house unit but in block.
