Publication: An analysis of user satisfaction in relation with sense of belonging in high income housing: Atakoy case
Housing choice and satisfaction are among the most important factors for users in housing areas. Istanbul Atakoy is one of the areas where housing satisfaction is at the highest level in many respects. This area, which has expanded over time with new buildings, is still very instructive for researchers, although various studies on satisfaction have been carried out in the past. In this study, the aim is to obtain new data by means of Atakoy Konaklari, which was completed in 2006 and has been in use for twelve years, and Yali Atakoy which was completed in 2016 and has been in use for two years. Satisfaction and sense of belonging in Atakoy are intertwined concepts. While Neighborliness is seen as a value that is important, it also affects settlement decisions. In this respect, Atakoy is a very special region. A phenomenological approach has been adopted in the research and by means of in-depth interviews, taking the answers of the users directly, the concepts of neighborhood, neighborliness, satisfaction and belonging have been interpreted.
