delalarya Alexander Vallaury was one of the pioneer architects in "fin de siecle" period of Ottoman Istanbul. He was born into a Levantine family and was the City Architect (Mimar-ı Şehir). This is his house. A humble choice for an architect who uses a broad spectrum of styles and rich, detailed decorations in his works. 2y
