architecture is just,

an opportunity;

“When they asked me the meaning of imagination,said that it is a pursuit of better world… Architecture is just an oppurtunity; what matters is life and, human.”Oscar Niemeyer

We started our jounery by finding answer of the question of how better world which is empowered by better liveable envirment would be ?

Inspiration which stems from our past and cultural values sheds on lights design of today’s structures that pave the way for better human life and environment.

We have a great oppurtunity of living in same country with Mimar Sinan who never has impossiblities in his character, which provide us to utilize his boundless experience. Owing to his boundless experience, we know that there can not be an architecture understanding which does not internalize human life, environment, social life, economy and even anthropology , psychology, sociology and philosophy in its formula. That is why we embrace holistic approach in our works

We bring past to today by modernizing it with the disciplined approach that we consider as a legacy,

We know the fact that the work that we process has a responsibility towards the geography that we live and the history that we come through. In this respect, we do not forget that next generations has a right to live in this world.

That is why, our endless ambition to looking for perfection will never end…

Great respect to everyone that walk with us in this way with their ideas and endeavor..
