The island of Cyprus has been a homeland for many different cultures all through the ages. The crosscultural impact of the Ottoman, Greek and British styles on one another, stresses the homogeneous atmosphere of Yeni Bogazici (Ayios Serylos) village, and old residential settlement in North Cyprus, on the scale of buildings and urban space. The village appears as the core of the local quality of the pattern exposing an identity, plural but similar at the same time. Such a circumstance makes the village original in exhibiting a unique cultural synthesis of Ottoman, Greek and British styles. Although that is a common situation for the whole of the Island, the merge of these cultures have been realised in Yeni Bogazici (Ayios Seryios) village in an attractive way. In such a unique district that is important in cultural and historical terms, if some design criteria are not implemented in the planning and building process, the urban quality may be lost along with the cultural and historical identity. In a historical environment formed by anonymous architecture like Yeni Bogazici village, the process of designing new buildings should be in three stages. First of all, the evolution of the built environment and the urban fabric should be determined and analysed with the aid of verbal and written sources. Secondly, the architectural and physical properties of the buildings should be well_defined up to their original period, a type catalogue and its grammar should be formed by the aid of typological analysis. Finally, alternative designs for the new buildings should be proposed based on the type catalogue and its grammar. Besides, considering the planning process, before any alterations for any buildings, spaces or any new developments, an overall conservation/revitalisation plan and policies should be made at the urban scale which determine the functional areas and possible contemporary uses of buildings. All new developments and design policies as well as conservation policies in historic settlements should be based upon the architectural and the urban heritage. In this paper, based on the findings of a previous research in which the first two stages mentioned above have been conducted, first, conservation and revitalisation policies which determine the functional areas and possible uses of buildings in Yeni Bogazici (Ayios Seryios) village will be introduced and then a design guideline for the village will be proposed. The aim here is to preserve the unique historical identity of the village while improving its image physically and functionally.
