Aim: Natural, cultural, economic and structural features affect the urban aesthetics. With globalization, cities have entered into a process of change and transformation, but often failing to preserve their identity and aesthetics. The aim of the study was to find an answer to the following questions: How should be the urban design guides, who will pave way for new studies on the formation, observation and maintenance of sustainability in urban aesthetic? What is the relationship between aesthetic and urban design guides?


Methodology: The study was carried out in Kanlıırmak District in Bartın-Turkey in four stages: data collection, analysis, evaluation, results and suggestions.


Results: In this context, design guides for open and green areas, street texture, building frontages, and urban furniture in Kanliirmak District had improved. The street silhouette of the selected area was prepared in accordance with the Urban Design Guides; its present structural and planting state was identified.


Interpretation: There being no urban design guides peculiar to Bartın, partial solutions were found for the plans and projects in the protection studies. Results are believed to be efficient in forming Bartin urban aesthetic and to be useful in future for other cities that naturally and socio-culturally resemble Bartin to the city from the aspect of urban aesthetic.
