The wooden kitchen building which was constructed during the era of Sultan Mahmud II, was used as the kitchen Beylerbeyi Palace. The original structure, which demonstrates the most beautiful examples of historical Turkish architecture, was used as a primary school for a long period, but got damaged during the time that it was not properly maintained.


In 1986, the building was rebuilt by the Sabanci Foundation according to its original shape and structure and it was turned over to the Ministry of National Education, who assigned it for use by the Continuation Institute.
