Buildings will be treated using Marshall’s brand new Akrikor Exterior Façade. This superior four-season paint will weatherproof the buildings as part of our global “Let’s Colour” program.
The project’s aiming to do even more than just spruce up the town’s historical buildings. An exhibition area is also being created where local historical artefacts such as ancient inscriptions, tombstones, sarcophagi and columns will be brought together in one place to showcase Taşhan’s colorful past. It’s hoped that creating one central location for the area’s historical gems will help the town to market its cultural heritage to the world and boost tourism in the local area.
As a result of the conservation project, the local community will also benefit from an additional welcome source of income. Renovated buildings will include a dedicated marketplace on the lower floors where local women can sell local produce, ceramics and needlework to visitors. It just goes to show that preserving the past can reap aesthetic, cultural and economic benefits for years to come.
