The most likely venue for this project is quite familiar for a person who lives in Istanbul: Istiklal Avenue. In the 19th century, the quarter “Pera” became the multicultural face of Istanbul, and it still has this identity not only with the lifestyle, but also with it’s European influenced urban texture. This texture is created with many elements: apartment blocks with large retail units on the ground floor, religional buildings: such as churches, mosques, synagogues; and passages, the linking structures of this network. Inside this texture, Santa Maria Han is holding a special value: it consists of shops, offices and a passage which links the street to the Santa Maria Church. Moreover, the original 3 storey high building has already been extended with 2 more levels, which were constructed in ‘60s. Above this 2 layered building, two more storeys were added as a 3rd layer. At this layer, a restaurant and a residence locates; which composed of floor to ceiling windows that made it possible to have a view of bosphorus and the Istiklal avenue at the same time.

The project locates in Levent settlement, which was created in ‘50s as a middle class residential area. The original style was inspired from the suburbans of Germany, which consists of various types of two storey single-family houses that composed in gardens.


After the industrialisation period, the city expanded unexpectably and Levent fastly became the major financial district, and that suburban area is now surrounded with skyscrapers, shopping malls and luxurious residences.


The project aims to create a cultural area in a neighborhood that evolves constantly; and as a result, one of the houses in the area is subjected to be renewed as a design workshop and an exhibition hall.

During the design period, the main purpose was to preserve the original façade patterns in a new concept. So a new pattern was created as a double façade, and that gave the advantage of designing a brand new gallery inside, free from the existing plan type. According to this, a double storey height gallery was designed and this part was covered with glass curtain walls. Rest of the building was planned as two storeys, which contains the workshop and office areas on the upstairs.


Finally, the building was covered with perforated copper plates as a second skin, mimicing the green theme of theneighborhood. For having a harmony with the park aside, right side of the façade was “pixelated” while the left side was left with with the original window modules.

The gallery was planned to be covered with perforated copper panels, which let the sufficent sunlight to get inside. Also that transparency provides a direct visual relation to the outside; which is a reallly important fact for the exhibitions for getting spotted by the people passing by. Inside the gallery, the stairs are designed in a special way, as a sculpture that extends from the wall towards the garden.

Right: Storyboards for depicting a possible scenario, which intends to picture an imaginary experience of a person who climbs the stairs and reaches the observation deck.

Kadikoy is one of the oldest districts of Istanbul, where locates on the Anatolian side of the city. It houses the main transportation hub of Anatolian side, and thousands of inhabitants are passing across Bosporus via ferries from the ports over there. The “new” pier project was not come off because of a problem, but as a proposition for an alternative architectural solution to the existing situation; which will offer a pier with transparent façades and a roof which is designed as an observation deck.

The design process in this project was a rather different from the others; this time the site was on the seashore, and it has to be done among many concerns about effecting the silhouette. KadÄąkĂśy port has a strong landmark, HaydarpaĹ&#x;a; the central train station of the Anatolian side of the city. Big contours of the building defines a beginning for the silhouette, and the rest of it visually extends through Marmara sea. Since the site is so delicate, a compact design was offered for the new pier. Moreover it has to be utilizable in other ways; the final concept consisted of a terminal building with glass facades, extending towards the sea, as if it is sailing and carrying people on its observation deck.

After the “sailing� concept developed, it was needed to define a form which is noticeable enough, but blending in the silhouette at the same time. So, many forms firstly developed in sketches, then several models were created.

The final design was developed on an intersection of two lines, each of them having different functions and creating a terminal area where they intersect. On left wing, the private functions of the pier took place, and on the right wing the public functions were planned, like ticket area and information kiosk. The roof of the building was designed as an observation deck, which has a direct panoramic view of the historical city of Istanbul. Perspective East elevation

The sketches and the models were primarily used as design tools more than technical drawings, because this project was more like creating an object, rather than designing in architectural practice.

The effect on silhouette was really important for the project development; so the views on daylight and nighttime had to be taken care of separately in the design process. Due to create a dynamic effect on the elevations, the glass façade of the pier was contoured with strong lines. These lines are also offers differentiating views when the building is observed from various points.

It was important to design a lightweight structure that can easily be constructed. Also another concern was the sustainability of the design; no matter how complex is the form, the building materials had to be found and applied easily. So it was planned to construct this design on shallow foundations and create the complex form with steel structures, then cover it with OSB panels and plasterboards. For finishing, it was planned to use stucco.

Istanbul is sprawling as it never been before, after massive immigrations the population boomed and borders of the city faded away; and this time the city grows vertically. The curiosity of real estate in the city center increased as the city center gets more dense; and as the land gets scarce, especially on the B端y端kdere axis, the prices topped almost $10k per sq-mt.

location zincirlikuyu, istanbul

To practice this situation, a mixed use project was tasked in Esentepe, just aside of Zincirlikuyu intersection, one of the few locations that remained undeveloped in this soon-to-be overdeveloped area. In this location it is demanded to create a mixed-use project which consists of residences, offices and retail areas and create an outstanding concept. Model Study (1/1000)

Many times there’s a contradiction between the land-worth and the public use; usually the higher the land-worth, the harder to utilize that area for public use. For instance, in Istanbul, there’s a little land for public use: there are nearly no green areas except cemeteries, and each sq-mt of the city is used for profitable reasons. To change this fact, a concept was developed, which will totally be accessible by public; like anyone walking on the street would pass through the building. In the middle of the area, a big garden and a public square was planned. By this, “The Shell” could get the chance to take interest of the inhabitants of this densely populated city, and encourage them to use the area.

The Design

â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Shellâ&#x20AC;? takes itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s name from its distinctive form, which consists of 10 modular pieces. Each module is created from the same piece, which is originally a square-prism box. For reaching this form, firstly the prisms were trimmed according to the parameter given, then they were merged into one single mass. After that, the modules were connected with a diagrid structure.

The site locates next to the Zincirlikuyu intersection of the O-2 freeway and Barbaros avenue. This brings many advantages to the area, for it takes just minutes to reach the financial district Levent or to cross the BoÄ&#x;aziçi Bridge for passing to Asiatic side of the city.

In a very dense location, it is not easy to get a peaceful environment. The half closed “Shell” form gave the opportunity to create a “paradise” in the middle of the area, which is protected from all of the rush on the outside. The inner garden behaves like a linking structure in between the spaces, like a buffer zone that filters the fast life away from there. Metrobus Terminal Station

This “slow” area is supported with a large public square which extends towards the office blocks. With this defined void, it is made possible to let the cultural activities in, which includes street artists, mini concerts and also street protests. The residences of “The Shell” are located in the last 6 blocks, and because of the form, they are in different sizes and shapes. However, the main feature which makes those residences unique is the fact that each apartment consists of a double-façade living room. This incredible feature offers users an incredible experiment of 270º view.

The top floors are covered with glass cladding, and utilized as recreational areas. The two storeys on the street levels are planned for retail and cultural use, for that reason they are designed with 5,25m ceiling height, with 4m clearance.

“The Nine” is designed with 2 different types of façades: as inner and outer skin of the building. The first and the most complicated one is the glass façades on the inner skin, which covers the spaces between the segments. This glass cladding is applied on the diagrid structure that links all of the segments into each other, and supports the roof structure which also composed of fully transparent materials. The second is the outer shell, which is produced with 3 elements: full lite doors, glass railings and bamboo shades. The foldable bamboo shells covers the glazing for preventing excessive heat gain from sunlight.

The passages are behaving like pores on the skin, connecting the city to the inner garden, letting people have an access through inside and the outside of the building in easiest way. Due to this, the ground floor is planned to have an extraordinary pedestrian flow, which turns the area into a hot spot in the neighborhood.

The revitalization can be done in many ways. In this project, it is tried to revitalize the Yeldeğirmeni district by creating a highly accessible place. Then the “flying hall” concept is created: a concert hall which is lifted from the ground, creating a column free space on the ground level, which can be utilized in many different ways. Also the vast spaces behind the site are transformed into a public square, for creating a relaxation point behind the crowded port area.

The “flying hall” is designed as a compact box which has a stage with a transparent background. This way it is made sure that all of the audience would be able to enjoy the magnificent view of Haydarpasa Train Station and Historical City of Istanbul and Pera during a concert. Moreover, the background includes the pier square and the ships, and it creates a dynamic relation between the stage and the people on the pier square, that anyone passing by has the chance of participating in this stage background.

location fatih, istanbul


The project is about the re-functioning of Bulgur Palas building and the reutilization of the site with new extensions. The main function was defined in a global scale; in a subject which nowadays has our world under itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s effect much more than anything else around: communication. The most outstanding feature in here is the Externalizators -the information hubs- where someone can connect him/herself to the world.


The project locates in the historic city of Istanbul, in Kocamustafapasa quarter.


Due to the launch of the tube system passing under Bosphorus Strait, the area became the new transportation hub of Istanbul Metropolitan Area.

By externalizing an idea, we get a better view of what it actually is. To externalize something is to actualize it in the physical world. Build it, make it, speak it, plough it. Then it is possible to experience it - look at it, touch it, hear it, walk around it. Once externalized, given a physical shape, it is now part of the input system, part of the previously raw environment. We can even return to it later - its physicality preserves it in a kind of shared ‘working memory’ to be developed or reconsidered at leisure, over an expanded timespan. Thus externalized ideas develop, becoming raw material for new ideas, in a never-ending feedback loop - a process that occurs whenever one acts upon the world.

night use

The nighttime use of the city is focused mainly on the European side of Bosphorus. One of the aims on this project is to utilize the area at night.

green areas

Since the neighborhood does not have sufficent green areas, it has been the first aim to bring plenty of green space.

...objective>subjective>objective>subjective... “L’existance précède l’essence.” [Existance precedes essence] -Sartre “Essence precedes existence” -Avicenna


The topography descents towards the south edge, and the surrounding streets were being too long way to get downwards. So extensions were designed as a linkage between two edges.


The new buildings were designed on the south edge of Bulgur Palas. They consist of exhibition halls, a performance hall and four externalizators.

52 53 2012

Since the culture is shared throughout the boundaries of the location that we live, our culture has begun to be determined by what we interest. So the concept is developed upon the idea of practicing an architectural space which can internalize the externalized ideas, and establish a connection to different parts of world to expand cultures.

Internet is a sufficient way of being a part of a culture, and an effortless way of externalization. Basically, you can expose your ideas with 140 characters; then you can become a part of any culture. On the other hand, world is not working on the same way: people still needs to collaborate to get a project done, and that is usually comes to real when you connect them face to face.

Bulgur palas research center offers an information bank, flexible workshop areas and a performance center to create this real connection environment.

The site: Bulgur Palas KocamustafapaĹ&#x;a Fatih, Istanbul

The project also aims to create a space that is needed to establish a connection in the global scale: externalizators, which will work as transmission hubs in this design. So all the things that will be created, spoken, written or performed in this center would easily be recorded, stored and shared with the world. Externalizators are the key feature of the project: they provide connections to the other research centers in the world, so the emerging ideas would easily travel the world, and create their cultural community.

And it is followed by the high speed train system in intercity transportation, the usage of photovoltaic panels, encouragement on hybrid cars and river transportation, and expansion of tram systems. This graphic has been created by the inspiration of monocle magazine illustrations.

This work is originally produced for an architectural design competition, in which the participants were obliged to produce green solutions for the city of Eskisehir while creating the architectural object: a history museum. Eskisehir is located in Mid- Anatolia, and it is also one of the first cities which had an access to the railway system (c.1890). Since then, the city grew as an industrial center; but that fact brought some negative effects on the city, like the unexpected growth of the population and the environmental pollution. Through those factors, the life quality decreased dramatically in â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;50s and it went worse on the following decades. However after the environmental policies have been followed by the city government, the people were urged to eliminate those negative effects. As a result, in this competition, the participants were tasked to find several solutions to the existing city conditions; which includes transportation systems, dependency on fossil fuels, lack of green areas and usage of the river.

compact portfolio

In 2012, on the senior year of the collage, an idea of self promotion emerged prior to my graduation. It should have been compact but detailed enough to show all of my personal works, and it should have been produced without too much effort and cost. So I decided to prepare a foldable flyer, which would only size 13*13cm when folded. The works were positioned in a chronological order, starting from the top right corner, just below the first line of mini biography and contact details. To provide a comfortable space when the flyer is unfolded, the dimensions were set to 65*65 cm for the maximum size.

The compact portfolio includes the personal works between 2007 and 2012. All of the projects were set to fit in to the rows or columns, which are equally consisted of 13*13cm squares. To separate the sections from each other, dot prints and yellow colour is used. The biography was planned to be overprinted onto the first row, which is revealing the brand name written in white over yellow. The brand is set to 250pt and written in Auxin Demi Bold. It is supposed to be perceived from a far distance, so it is planned to be written in a calm but loud sense. When folded, the portfolio reveals only “a” letter, which is used for the brand logo.

The project site for this residential community is located in the Asiatic side of Istanbul, within a recent prime urban development area. Due to the risk of earthquakes, the area has undergone an urban transformation but has fully maintained the reconsideration of the region in terms of urban needs. Presently there are 19 blocks, hosting 108 apartments, in the project area. As the land has been transformed under the umbrella of urban regeneration, it is only feasible for investors that the new project proposal needs to offer recent homeowners 25% more area than their existing apartment space. At the same time they foresee that the number of new apartments must be maintained at least as many as the previous ones, i.e, 4 units will be increased to 5 units at 25% area increase. In all, there will be 10 units which will bring out a density increase of 250%.

When all these factors are taken into consideration, the new project proposal is preferred to be in a state of â&#x20AC;&#x153;single buildingâ&#x20AC;? that is located over the boundaries of the site with a maximum thickness by defining a qualified, useful community courtyard in the middle. Thanks to this approach, apartments looking on both sides without any distance limitation and more efficient living spaces without long corridors and dark spaces are designed. Furthermore; the common spaces designed in and under the courtyard become more useful in size. Because of the fact that this organic formed building needs to offer equal standards for the recent apartment owners, this single building is defined in blocks to constitute standardization. Regarding all these design decisions, the distance between the blocks is 30 meters minimum and 60 meters maximum which is something encountered rarely in a crowded city like Istanbul.

Social facilities are designed on basement floor under the courtyard to meet the demands of all the residents and platforms are proposed in the courtyard for people to reach these social spaces easily. To conserve the fair distribution between the flats, which has common spaces such as the kitchen and living room looking towards inside and outside, the courtyard is filled with landscape elements and isolated from social activities. Facades of the building are also differentiated inside and outside. Sliding and foldable wooden shutters are used inside to obtain efficient privacy and light control while almost 30% less dense or translucent facade elements are used outside where privacy is not a critical issue any more. This kind of a facade language refers to the traditional facades of waterside residences which are very common in Istanbul.

Consulate General of Turkey in M端nster

A consulate building is demanded by Turkish government, to be built in M端nster, Germany in 2013. Designing a building outside the country was a quite different process, because of the strict regulations designated by German government. So the process started by visualizing the regulations, which restricts building heights above 18,50 and regulates the setback boundaries. First the drafts were prepared freehand, then the models were created. Finally the models were exported to illustrator, then the diagrams were created.

The graphics were created in a flow that goes from the bigger scale to the smaller scale diagrams. First, the whole neighborhood was illustrated, and the location of the site was highlighted. Following this, first rule is shown in the second frame, which tells that this area could be at a maximum height of 12 meters and could be consisted of 4 floors at most. On the third frame, it can be observed that the side looking to the main street is slightly lifted. In this part, it was defined that the building could top 15 meter height, consisted of 4 or 5 floors. On the last frame, the highest point is illustrated, which restricts elevations exceeding 18,50 meters. This part of the building could be consisted of 4 or 5 floors. When we look on a smaller scale that only shows the building site, the phases of design can be seen: when the rules applied, the required space was calculated, then it was considered negative because of being too deep for taking daylight inside. So it was decided to open a patio inside the building and set the functions around.

Urban farm concept is developed within a temporary marketplace project, which locates in the Beşiktaş Cumartesi Pazarı area. There is an existing two storey marketplace structure at the intersection of Beşiktaş and Şişli districts, which serves as a marketplace in Saturdays, being utilized as car park on the other days of the week. The municipality of Istanbul demanded a renewal project for this area, with some new features, including a permanent marketplace and cultural areas. Due to the importance of the area, there were many parameters to be considered; the fact that Beşiktaş and Şişli districts are the city’s hot spots, the cultural function of this area should involve all of the habitants interest. Also the demand for car park is increasing each day, so it is determined that the new structure should be able to get as many cars as possible without effecting the neighborhood.

Cities are the places where have the highest demands for the food. But in a place where the food is so important, it is strange that the inhabitants are usually unaware of the whole production process. So an urban farm is decided to be created on the top floor, where the Istanbulers could experience the food production phases. The urban farm consist of three parts, the first part is urban farm, where the plantations locates. Here the plants are grown in mobilized pots, so this place would be organized according to different needs. The second part includes an information center, a cinema and a facility area where people would gain information about different topics about farming. The last part is a cafe and a teahouse, where prepares special products from the plants that are grown in the urban farm.

The functions are regulated due to the requirements of the project: a permanent marketplace area is designed on the ground floor. This way the area would get utilized positively during the week. The first, second, and third floors are planned to be used as temporary marketplace and car park. Apart from the shafts inside the building, all of the levels are connected to the street. By this, the accessibility is maximized. The main entrance is located on Nüzhetiye street. From this point, the building is designed to have 4 floors; but the marketplace structure is located on a sloped area, for that reason it is perceived as a one floor building from rear, and that gives the advantage of establishing a direct connection to the ground from the top floor with only few steps.

Second row shows the importance of the cultural sustainability, for this culture needs to be transmitted to the new generations. At this point urban farm has a key role, because the habits of the new generation is a rather different, so in a new way they are needed to be attracted to this culture: the Urban Farm.

temporary marketplace The project positions itself in Sultangazi, Istanbul which is a developing neighborhood within the scope of urban regeneration. Site is surrounded by condense residential blocks and it is owned by the municipality. In this area which has a critical value due to its environment and functions, proposed designed is expected to include a temporary market place that will operate as a car park when there is no market activity and a closed structure, about 2000 square meters, accommodating social, educational, administrative functions. In Turkey, almost every district of every city has the routine of having a market place. These market places take place on specific days. Stallholders set up their stalls in a location on a specific day and then during the rest of the week they move to other locations. This

circulation happens every week as a routine. When the stalls are gone, instead of leaving this space empty and useless, the local municipalities operate these areas mostly as car parks where some of them utilize other activities such as workshops and exhibitions. Thus, functional sustainability is yielded by operating these various activities. One of the most crucial facts which is severely shaping the design process and cannot be ignored is the block density around this land. These kind of market places have always been an element of social cohesion in the neighborhood, a landmark, a park, a leisure development or sometimes almost secret and visible only to its inhabitants. This condition of density that the market has in relation to the neighborhood should be one of the Continued on p90 >

When there is no bazaar activity inside, these stalls rise and form a secondary surface as a suspended ceiling just like filigree above. Through this surface, it is aimed for people going around to be able to feel the spirit of a bazaar even when it is not a bazaar any more. This dynamic mechanism helps both the installation and
