Abstract. Documentation in maintaining cultural properties is a highly important stage of work for determination of the unique properties. The researches having been carried out over years to increase the accuracy of documentation enabled it to reach such a point that the properties can be scanned by 3D laser scanners today. In order for the lost parts of the civil architecture examples required to be preserved in the context of cultural texture to be found and reconstructed, precise measurement have gained importance in documentation of the current status. Over years, major losses have arisen in the cultural texture situated around Erzurum Castle where the unique architectural examples are placed together. In this study, the importance of the 3D documentation in preserving the cultural properties is discussed in the context of Zırnıklı Vehbi Bey Mansion situated near to the Castle. The CAD drawings of this structure which has significantly lost its spatial integrity has been generated from the 3D laser point clouds, then the restitution and the restoration projects of the monument have been prepared accordingly.
