Redesigning abandoned industrial areas (brownfield) requires the consideration of environmental concerns such as remediation. The design process should consider this context's economic and social sensitivities and environmental factors. In this study, a methodology for the redevelopment of the brownfield has been proposed. The proposed method consists of the parts which determine the design approach, collection, analysis, and synthesis of the data, determining the aims and objectives, determining intervention areas, the search for form with a visual programming language, layout plan, and architectural design. The methodology is applied in the context of an urban design project (Antalya Kepez Sumerbank Weaving Factory site). The process can be used in the conceptual design stage of brownfield redevelopment projects.
