Istanbul Trip, Day 6, Scene 4
The owner of the historic estate where Emirgan Park is located changed several times. By the end of the 1860s, it was owned by Khedive Ismail Pasha (reigned 1863-1879), Ottoman governor of Egypt and Sudan. The area was used as the backyard of a large wooden yalı (a mansion built right on the water) that he built on the shore of the Bosphorus. Further, he built within the park area three wooden pavilions between 1871-1878 as hunting lodges and guest houses. One of these large wooden mansions in the form of chalets is the Yellow Pavilion (Turkish: Sarı Köşk). It is situated in the center of the park and overlooks the Bosphorus. It is a two-storey mansion with one balcony, one terrace and a basement, constructed on an area of 400 m² (4,300 sq ft). It consists of four rooms, one hall and a kitchen in the lower floor and three rooms and one salon in the upper floor. Its layout reflects the architecture of the traditional Ottoman house with a salon encircled by many living rooms. The ornaments on the ceilings and the walls were the work of the court architect Sarkis Balyan. The ceilings are enriched with oil painted flower figures and the facades with outstanding carvings. The high doors and windows, as well as the opulent interior decorations in bright colors reflect the glory of that era. The pond depicted in Bridge over Quiet Waters is situated to the northeast, downhill from the mansion.
This is the entrance to the second floor of the pavilion. Since it is built on a slope, the first floor appears to be underground from this vantage point. I wish I still had that B&W photo I took of this building in the 1970s with my REVUE mat 12.
İstanbul Seyahati, Gün 6, Sahne 4
Emirgan Parkı’nın bulunduğu tarihi gayrimenkulün sahibi birkaç kez değişti. 1860'ların sonuna gelindiğinde, Mısır ve Sudan'ın Osmanlı valisi Hıdiv İsmail Paşa (1863-1879 hüküm etmiş) sahibiydi. Alan onun Boğaz kıyısında inşa ettiği büyük bir ahşap yalının arka bahçesi olarak kullanılmıştır. Ayrıca, o avcılık kulübesi ve konuk evi olmak üzere 1871-1878 arasındaki park alanı içinde üç ahşap pavyon inşa etti. Dağ evleri şeklinde bu büyük ahşap konaklardan biri Sarı Pavyon’dur (Türkçe : Sarı Köşk). Bu parkın merkezinde yer alır ve Boğaz'a bakmaktadır. 400 m² (4.300 ayak kare) bir alan üzerine inşa edilmiş bir balkonu, bir terası ve bodrumu ile iki katlı bir konaktır. Alt katta dört oda, bir salon ve bir mutfak ve üst katta üç oda ve bir salondan oluşur. Düzeni çok oturma odalarıyla çevrili bir salon ile geleneksel Osmanlı evinin mimarisini yansıtmaktadır. Tavanlardaki ve duvarlardaki süslemeler saray mimarı Sarkis Balyan eseriydi. Tavanlar yağlı boya çiçek figürleri ve cepheler olağanüstü oymalar ile zenginleştirilmiştir. Yüksek kapı ve pencereler ile parlak renklerde zengin iç dekorasyonu o dönemin ihtişamını yansıtmaktadır. Sakin Sular üstünden Köprü’de tasvir edilen gölet, yokuş aşağı konağın kuzeydoğusunda yer almaktadır.
Bu köşkün ikinci katına giriştir. Bir yamaçta inşa edildiğinden birinci katı bu noktadan yeraltında gibi görünüyor. Keşke hala bu binanın benim REVUE mat 12 ile 1970'lerde aldığın S&B fotoğrafım olsaydı.

A pity about the cars but nothing you can do about that.A very ornate building.In fact it almost seems unreal.Something that would belong in a child`s storybook.
Very decorative architecture and clarity good.

Hello Murat, Very nice old pavillion with fantastic woodwork. What the nuisance for photographers when there are parking cars nearby. And nothing can be done, unfortunately. I checked finally where Emirgan is, quite far from the centre. I was as far as Rumeli Hisari and then went by ferry to Yoros castle.
have a nice Sunday

You're capturing well this architecture by a good composition and excellent tone/clarity, so it's interesting and impressive to see the mansion with traditional Ottoman style. It seems to harmonize well by a good design, tasteful ornaments and beautiful color combination. Especially, it's impressive in ornaments of entrance and outer wall. I know that it lets the Turkey series pass and the feelings to which you sympathize with the architecture, landscape and culture of your mother country.

Built on a slope, I can only imagine the view from itsother side. Yet, it looks made of wood, a special white color timber or a sort of.
Fine picture, details shown very clearly, and the addition of modern-life, the parked cars.
Have a nice sunday,

The presence of the cars has an effect of scale. The point of view is showing the details of the architecture of the yellow pavilion. The good luminosity is enhancing the colors. Have a nice day.

Very attractive old cottage with lots of interesting and ornate details. A pity for the many parked cars, but what can one do ...
This reminds me of the beautiful old quarter of Yesil Ev, back in the 80ties when we visited Istanbul. Does that charming quarter still exists?
have a great day and happy easter

A very interesting piece of architecture, lovely detail in the walls and porch. Yes pity about the cars, but you have presented it well.

Amazing building, beautiful architecture and original decoration, very well captured, although I'd love to see this house without cars :))

I liked the sample of architecture we can see here, really is a big and beautiful house. interesting the adornments in the edge of the roofs remember me the polish ones and those we can find here in my region in the past, especially in the regions with more european immigrants.
I would like to cut off the lower part of the image.
