Turkish construction products company Marmara Group has been doing its bit to preserve Istanbul’s unique bathing culture in funding the restoration of the 16th century Zeyrek Çinili Hammam in the city’s Zeyrek district.

Built by architect Sinan, no less, it was adorned internally with magnificent blue and white ‘Iznik’ tiles. Some of these have now been returned to the site in Atelier Brückner’s restoration of the building, alongside its creation of an on-site museum that showcases the history and cultural significance of the hammam over the centuries.
