Occidental The Public Hotel is the typical example of the late 19th century Istanbul architecture. The restoration of the building which is a first-degree historical monument, was carried out under the supervision of an advisory committee consisting of experts in their subject and academicians especially leagued together for this project in conjunction with the Cultural and Natural Heritage Preservation Board by showing regard to some significant points such as structural reinforcement, load-bearing system security, scientific preservation and restitution, fire safety, architectural history and geotechnical evaluations.
In the course of restoration works, the insertions and fittings of poor quality such as plaster, paint, etc. which did not exist in the original architecture of Occidental The Public Hotel, were all cleared away and the building was rehabilitated back into its initial form which reflects the authentic architecture of its period. The opening glass roof upon the courtyard at the top of the building was another important constituent of the renovation works.
