Izmir Palas

Harbiye Mh., Bronz Sokak, Nişantaşı, Istanbul

This Orientalist building is the most completely preserved of the palazzos. It’s got a pointy-arched entrance, a domed viewing tower and a formal garden with a giant wisteria. It was built by an Izmir businessman, Suresh Şerifza Ahmed Bey, in the first ten years of Turkey becoming a Republic. Today it houses apartments.
