Throughout history, water has been an important issue for civilizations. Societies preferred the waterside to live. They needed a place with for cleaning. As a result of this need, hammam structures were shaped. Hammams have become important structures in the architecture of many societies. Within the scope of Turkish architecture, hammam structures were seen as important places. With the passing of Anatolia under Turkish domination, hammam structures were built in many settlements. One of these settlements is Denizli. Thanks to its natural water resources, the city has a very rich history in terms of hammam structures. However, Germiyanoğlu (Vakiflar) Hammam, one of the historical hammam, has survived to the present day. Within the scope of the study, this structure, which partially preserved its original function, was discussed. The women's section of the building is used as a business today. The men's section continues to function as a hammam. The aim of the study is to carry out an examination on the original situation of the building, which was built as a double hammsm and the compilation of information about its use as two different places today. In this way, it has been ensured to reveal the situation of the double hammam which continues to be used as two different spaces in everyday life, in the face of its differentiated functions, and to introduce elements such as facade features, interior organization by comparing them with the original situation.
