nicspix9 #flashbackfriday The grand staircase at the entrance of a Pasha's home in #yenikoy, #istanbul. A 'Pasha' was an Ottoman title; similar to that of a British Lord. This house, circa 1910, was built by renowned French-Ottoman architect Alexander Vallaury (1850-1921). #neobaroque #interior #grandstaircase #grand #entrance #pasha #residence #igersistanbul #turkey 12mon

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
