Brief information about the projects that you/your company have been involved with. For instance, what scale have you focused on/preferred, any significant projects where the company/individuals have been involved?

In our individual professional lives, we have been working with different scales of projects. As a team, our plan is to keep this diversity as well. For us, it is important to merge our ideas and get the best of them. The crucial point in our design process is, independent from the scale, to be able to imagine ourselves in our creation.

What does architecture mean to you and what is the role of an architect in your society?

Architecture is creating spaces for the living. While designing, the consciousness of user needs is essential. Architecture, therefore, is a tool to correspond to those. We aim to create refined spaces by harmonizing environmental, functional and constructive elements.

Why do you participate in architecture vision competitions?

We believe it is one of the best ways to keep professional creativity alive. by allowing the participants to push their limits. Thanks to these competitions, we as designers are able to widen our capability of thinking and discover new methods. These competitions allow us to push the creative limit with innovative ideas.

What advice would you give to individuals who struggle to decide whether it would be beneficial for them to participate in architecture vision competitions?

We would suggest they to just go for it! This is a perfect way to stimulate your design and creative skills. Architecture allures us with its creative aspect, and these competitions are a great opportunity to dive into the imaginative work.
