Abstract: Masonry structures have been preferred for centuries in most of the countries across the world because they are easy to build and economical due to the use of local materials in their construction. As a result of high usage volume, masonry structures that created the architectural section of history and culture constitute an important part of the current building stock despite the developing and diversified construction techniques nowadays. The protection of these structures, which are important both in terms of their cultural values and their transfer to future generations, is of great importance in the architectural point of view. For this purpose, a masonry structure from Foca is selected. The material properties and architectural plan of the structure are determined in accordance with the original one. The structure is modelled by using a software program under seismic effects. Displacement and stress values for each acceleration record are obtained. Besides, an evaluation is made in the direction of the analysis results and it is determined according to the seismic performance of the structure. After that, the structure is retrofitted according to the current design codes and without distorting the architectural perspective. This study aims to increase the structural strength of the case building by using conventional and modern techniques for the recovery of the structure.
