The methodology applied to the restoration of the Ottoman Bath (hamam) in the city of Ioannina, Greece is presented. The monument, dating back to the beginning of 17th century, is typical example of Ottoman architecture. At present it is in ruined condition. The restoration study, based on thorough investigation of the structural system and the material properties, includes static and dynamic analyses using FEM. Dynamic analysis takes into account not only the national provisions for earthquake design but also selected actual earthquake records. The study consists of two stages. In the first, the monument at its original state is analysed, in order to evaluate the damages. In the second numerous analyses are performed, gradually increasing the degree of intervention, to determine the best proposal (minimum intervention) for restoration. The results point out the structure’s vulnerable areas and give accurate account of actual damages. Moreover, the dynamic analysis using selected records of major Greek earthquakes sheds light to the behavior of a complex monument structure under seismic loads. Overall, the methodology used could function as blueprint for interventions in similar monuments.
