Boğazkesen Street, an old settlement in Istanbul, has been through a controversial transformation process for a while. The street has a critical importance as a gentrification area not only because of its spatial location but also the difficult period of transformation. As a result of the tension between newcomers and the old-existing habitants and along with the process, which is also reflected in the media organs; the gentrification process of Boğazkesen is thought to be a social case, which requires a deep analysis. Additionally, the association that is concerned with social environment, which is the interest of architecture all along, has brought about a number of critiques, as well. These critiques are primarily based on the constituted relationship between the both sides of the habitants, local residents and newcomers, and their adaptation process to new conditions. In this study, how the newcomers’ adaptation proceeds and what their adaptationstrategies are examined. While the research has two focal points –a specific place (Boğazkesen Street-Tophane) and a specific group of people (newcomers of the street)-, the traces will be based on their relationship with the existing habitants and the existing lifestyle. In this respect, this research studies the gentrification process of Boğazkesen, and focuses on the adaptation process of newcomers. ‘Gentrification’, ‘adaptation’ and ‘acculturation’, are theoretically discussed, relations between newcomers and existing habitants are disclosed. Secondly, the gentrification process of the area is observed. It is attempted to narrate the process first from the press and secondly through the interviews with gentrifies.
