Campus Mizzi

IFA Paris Istanbul takes us on a journey to the historical Mizzi Apartment, where its new campus is located.

In 1893, people representing different languages and identities came together in Beyoğlu Pera and lined up in their small houses with consecutive street numbers. Number 13, which appeared to be empty because it was under construction the year before, was given the name: Maison Mizzi. This house, where Lawyer Lewis F. Mizzi lived, though a standard building, he called it a ‘maison’ and set it apart from the other buildings on the street.

Over the years, many high-level names from the celebrities of the Pera society to the directors of the biggest stores of the city lived in the Mizzi Apartment, and by the 1920s, photography shops and patisseries were opened on the street. Street names began to change in 1927, pursuant to the law on "Numbering Buildings and Changing Street Names, Preparation of Signs". The Mizzi Apartment then became known as the Neşe Apartment.
